Flume Test Assessment

Question #1 of 3

What is the purpose of this command?
bin/flume-ng avro-client -H localhost -p 41414 -F /usr/logs/log.10

    • send the contents of /usr/logs/log.10 to the Flume source listening on that ports with Avro client

    • send the contents of /usr/logs/log.10 to the Flume source listening on that ports with Avro server

    • send the contents of /usr/logs/log.10 to the HDFS

    • send the contents of /usr/logs/log.10 to the datanode

Question #2 of 3

Assume we have code snippet, what is the purpose of code?

// Setup properties for the load balancing
Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("client.type", "default_loadbalance");
// List of hosts (space-separated list of user-chosen host aliases)
props.put("hosts", "h1 h2 h3");
// host/port pair for each host alias
String host1 = "hoang.ngo.org:41414";
String host2 = "hoang.ngo.org:41414";
String host3 = " hoang.ngo.org:41414";
props.put("hosts.h1", host1);
props.put("hosts.h2", host2);
props.put("hosts.h3", host3);
props.put("host-selector", "random"); // For random host selection
// props.put("host-selector", "round_robin"); // For round-robin host
//                                            // selection
props.put("backoff", "true"); // Disabled by default.

props.put("maxBackoff", "10000"); // Defaults 0, which effectively
                                  // becomes 30000 ms

// Create the client with load balancing properties
RpcClient client = RpcClientFactory.getInstance(props);

    • For scale out host in Flume
