Apache Flume™ is a distributed, reliable, and available service for efficiently collecting, aggregating, and moving large amounts of log data. It has a simple and flexible architecture based on streaming data flows. It is robust and fault tolerant with tunable reliability mechanisms and many failover and recovery mechanisms. It uses a simple extensible data model that allows for online analytic application.
This section provides information about installing, configuring, and using Flume with MapR, but does not duplicate Apache documentation. You can refer also to documentation available from the Apache Flume Project and the Flume Release Notes for MapR.
