Re: Importing log files from various machines
Just use the hadoop client tools.  That is the hadoop package and configure
it to point to your running cluster.  You don't need to start any hadoop
processes on the node with your logs.  Just use the command line (hadoop dfs
-put) or (hadoop distcp) to move the files from each application server
directly into your HDFS cluster.
