Short Description
Apache Flume with HDFS support
Full Description


Apache Flume 1.6 with HDFS support included.

Running the container

docker run --name flume-hdfs -e FLUME_AGENT_NAME=agent -d avastsoftware/flume-hdfs

The above will start Flume with the default example configuration. You will need to provide your own configuration
by mounting the configuration directory (containing the configuration file) as follows:

docker run --name flume-hdfs -e FLUME_AGENT_NAME=agent-v /path/to/conf/dir:/opt/lib/flume/conf -d avastsoftware/flume-hdfs

Environment variables

These settings can be specified (overriden) via configuration environment variables:

Environment variable Meaning Default
FLUME_AGENT_NAME Agent name. Agent specified in the configuration file needs to match this name. No default (required setting)
FLUME_CONF_DIR Flume configuration directory. This is where the configuration file is expected to be located. /opt/lib/flume/conf
FLUME_CONF_FILE Name of the Flume configuration file. /opt/lib/flume/conf/
