Upgrading Flume

This section describes how to upgrade Flume without the MapR Installer.

Flume installs into separate directories named after the version, such as /opt/mapr/flume/flume-<version>/.
To upgrade with the package manager, run one of the following commands:
On RedHat and CentOS:
yum update mapr-flume
On Ubuntu:
apt-get install mapr-flume
On SUSE:
zypper update mapr-flume

To apply custom configurations to the new version, migrate any custom configuration settings into the new default files in the conf directory (/opt/mapr/flume/flume-<version>/conf/). See Post-Upgrade Steps for Flume.
