We have a HDP3.1 cluster but would like to continue using Flume, even though it is now depreciated and not supported by Ambari. Is there any documentation / know ways to add Flume back in to Ambari, such that Flume can be managed through Ambari?
I've tried modifying the Ambari stack definitions but not having much luck as it means I have to pull from both the HDP 3.1 repo and a HDP 2.x repo which seems to confuse Ambari.
We have looked at NiFi as an option as replacement to Flume. Unfortunately, we have a large legacy Flume installation which would have to be migrated.
