Apache Flume, the way your information flowsApache Flume is a key software piece in BigData environments, we have used it along with CDC (Change Data Capture) to ingest near real time database changes into Kafka so the data is available for realtime analysis, machine learning, dynamic dashboards and so on. We have successfully integrated also Apache Flume in log acquisition solutions (mainly PaaS and Docker) where application log is difficult access.,Multiple sources of data (sources) and destinations (sinks) that allows you to move data form and to any relevant data storage It is very easy to setup and run Very open to personalization, you can create filters, enrichment, new sources and destinations,Apache Flume develops new functionality at a slower pace than other OpenSource projects, it is well behing Kafka and has some compatibiliy issues with latest releases It lack HA or FT, it relies on third party management software like Hortonworks or Cloudera,7,Flume has simplified a lot many of our ingest procedures, easier to deploy and integrate than a classical EAI, reducing the time to market But opposed to EAIs if the project starts to grow in complexity Apache Flume project may not be as suitable,Logstash,Apache Kafka, Logstash, TIBCO BusinessWorks, TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

Apache Flume is a key software piece in BigData environments, we have used it along with CDC (Change Data Capture) to ingest near real time database changes into Kafka so the data is available for realtime analysis, machine learning, dynamic dashboards and so
on.

We have successfully integrated also Apache Flume in log acquisition solutions (mainly PaaS and Docker) where application log is difficult access.
  • Multiple sources of data (sources) and destinations (sinks) that allows you to move data form and to any relevant data storage
  • It is very easy to setup and run
  • Very open to personalization, you can create filters, enrichment, new sources and destinations
  • Apache Flume develops new functionality at a slower pace than other OpenSource projects, it is well behing Kafka and has some compatibiliy issues with latest releases
  • It lack HA or FT, it relies on third party management software like Hortonworks or Cloudera
Apache Flume is well suited in small batch and near real time processing projects, taking data from one point to another with local processing (I mean not external enrichment).
Filtering, transforming and multiple push destinations are common grounds for Flume.

It is not so nice to use if your data needs external enrichment (taking data from external databases or web services), as transactions and (micro)batches may lead to reprocessing and it relies upon the application to avoid duplicates.
