Pros and Cons

  • Apache Flume being a log-centric system, it is able to parse and aggregate log data very well.
  • It is easy to customize it for different source (producers) for log data ingestion as well as for sinks (consumers).
  • It is very specific for log data ingestion so it is pretty hard to use for anything else besides log data
  • Data replication is not built in and needs to be added on top of Apache Flume (not a hard job to do though)

Pros and Cons

  • 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
