I got this link from the before post:
http://hortonworks.com/blog/configure-elastic-search-hadoop-hdp-2-0/ "flume example"
The diagram show the sink can be hdfs or elastic search.
I would like to try with hdfs in sandbox.
What should be the value of sink for hdfs.
I tried sink.type=logger, the configuration file is throwing an error.
Since I am learning flume by trying out the examples mentioned in sandbox, it would be good if you could help me.
Here's all info on Flume sinks and sample hdfs sink configuration
a1.channels = c1
a1.sinks = k1
a1.sinks.k1.type = hdfs
a1.sinks.k1.channel = c1
a1.sinks.k1.hdfs.path = /flume/events/%y-%m-%d/%H%M/%S
a1.sinks.k1.hdfs.filePrefix = events-
a1.sinks.k1.hdfs.round = true
a1.sinks.k1.hdfs.roundValue = 10
a1.sinks.k1.hdfs.roundUnit = minute
