ClassNotFoundException org.apache.flume.instrumentation.kafka.KafkaSinkCounter

Contributor

Hi all,

We are trying to write in a Kafka queue with Flume. We have HDP 2.2.4, with this Flume 1.5.2.2.2 is installed.

Below the kafka sink configuration:

occLogTcp.sinks.KAFKA.type = org.apache.flume.sink.kafka.KafkaSink
occLogTcp.sinks.KAFKA.topic = occTest
occLogTcp.sinks.KAFKA.brokerList = <broker_host_1>:9092,<broker_host_2>:9092
occLogTcp.sinks.KAFKA.requiredAcks = 1
occLogTcp.sinks.KAFKA.batchSize = 20
occLogTcp.sinks.KAFKA.channel = c1

Starting the flume agent throws the following error:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:

we backported Kafka sink into 1.5.2, just make sure you are using HDP 2.3, I see you're on 2.2.4 which is quite old. Alternatively, try HDF powered by Apache nifi

It seems like the package org/apache/flume/instrumentation/kafka/ has been added in version 1.6. Therefore Flume 1.5.2 doesn't support the KafkaSink.

Latest 2.3 release notes http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.3.4.7/bk_HDP_RelNotes/content/errata_flume_kafka...

You do not need Flume 1.6 on HDP to have it working.
