      • command line parsing
        • conf/flume.conf
          agent.sources.source1.type = exec
          agent.sources.source1.command = tail -f /some/path/logs/exception/error.log.`date +%Y%m%d%H`
          
        • result
          tail: /some/path/logs/exception/error.log.`date: No such file or directory

        • needs to be improved
          (ExecSouce.java:242) String[] commandArgs = command.split("\\s+") 
          
      • using special character (e.g. *, `, ', ...)
        • conf/flume.conf
          agent.sources.source1.type = exec
          agent.sources.source1.command = tail -f /some/path/logs/exception/error.log.*
          
        • result
          tail: /some/path/logs/exception/error.log.*: No such file or directory
          
        • needs to be improved
          (ExecSouce.java:243) process = new ProcessBuilder(commandArgs).start();
