Flume Twitter - Could not find any valid channels. Marking it as invalid. No configuration found for this host:TwitterAgent

Hi I am trying to fetch the data from twitter to my hdfs and while running my flume-ng agent, i am getting below logs.

could you please assist me

@Praveen PentaReddyMost likely in your twitter.conf you have "TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.channels" instead of "sinks". There will be multiple properties and they should all be TwitterAgent.sinks not "sink".

If that doesn't work you may want to post your twitter.conf and flume.env.sh so we can help narrow it down.

I would also strongly consider looking at using NiFi for handling the movement of data from Twitter to HDFS, here is a detailed tutorial on doing that: https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/1282/sample-hdfnifi-flow-to-push-tweets-into-solrbanana.h...

As said by Devin, in your flume.conf file you must have below incorrectly specified properties.

TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.hdfs.path

TwitterAgent.channel.Memchannel.capacity

TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.channel

TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.hdfs.writeFormat

TwitterAgent.channel.Memchannel.type

TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.hdfs.rollCount

TwitterAgent.channel.Memchannel.transactionalCapacity

TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.hdfs.batchsize

TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.hdfs.rollSize

TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.hdfs.filetype

TwitterAgent.sink.HDFS.type

In each of above configuration you need to use TwitterAgent.sinks.HDFS.... and TwitterAgent.channels.Memchannel... etc. Since property syntax in wrong , flume is ignoring them and no channel was finally configured for TwitterAgent agent. Hence this agent was marked as incorrect and hence flume is unable to fetch data.

Thanks after making correction in the conf file below is what i got it. However, i could not see the data into Hdfs

Any suggestions?

@Praveen PentaReddy Can you please mark an answer as accepted, and then create a new question with your new problem? This way it is indexed and other people with a similar new problem will be able to benefit? Please post your Flume conf file as well, i believe you might have a bind property off in it which is why the sink is not working.

Thanks.

@Praveen PentaReddy

agent.sources = Twitter agent.channels = MemChannel agent.sinks = HDFS

agent.sources.Twitter.type = com.orienit.kalyan.flume.source.KalyanTwitterSource agent.sources.Twitter.channels = MemChannel agent.sources.Twitter.consumerKey = xxxx agent.sources.Twitter.consumerSecret = xxx agent.sources.Twitter.accessToken = xxxx agent.sources.Twitter.accessTokenSecret = xxxx agent.sources.Twitter.keywords = hadoop,spark,kafka,flume,spark steaming,NIFI,Bigdata,hortonworks,oozie,sqoop,hive,mapreduce,pig,scala

agent.sinks.HDFS.type = hdfs agent.sinks.HDFS.channel = MemChannel agent.sinks.HDFS.hdfs.path =/flume/tweets/%y/%m/%d/%H/%M agent.sinks.HDFS.hdfs.fileType = DataStream agent.sinks.HDFS.hdfs.writeFormat = Text agent.sinks.HDFS.hdfs.batchSize = 100 agent.sinks.HDFS.hdfs.rollSize = 0 agent.sinks.HDFS.hdfs.rollCount = 100 agent.sinks.HDFS.hdfs.useLocalTimeStamp = true

agent.channels.MemChannel.type = memory agent.channels.MemChannel.capacity = 1000 agent.channels.MemChannel.transactionCapacity = 100

You can try this configuration Praveen
