Integrate Flume with MapR Streams

Integrate Flume 1.6 with MapR Streams when you want to write Flume source data to a MapR Streams topic or when you want to write MapR Streams topics to a Flume sink.

You can use Flume and MapR Streams for many different use cases; however, here are a few examples:
Write MapR Streams topics to file on the MapR-FS
To write MapR Streams topics to the MapR-FS, create an agent with a Kafka source and a HDFS sinks.
Write MapR Streams topics to HBase or MapR-DB
To write MapR Streams topics to HBase or MapR-DB, create an agent with a Kafka source and an HBase sink.
Write data from any supported Flume source to MapR Streams topics
To write data from any supported Flume source to MapR Streams topics, create an agent with the appropriate Flume source type and a Kafka sink or Kafka channel. For example, you can use a syslogs source to turn logs into a MapR stream topic.
Note: Before you integrate Flume with MapR Streams, verify that the Streams Client is installed on all Flume nodes. For more information, see Installing Flume
