    Description

      Currently the following issues affect Spark Streaming and Flume compatibilty:

      • If a spark worker goes down, it needs to be restarted on the same node, else Flume cannot send data to it. We can fix this by adding a Flume receiver that is polls Flume, and a Flume sink that supports this.
      • Receiver sends acks to Flume before the driver knows about the data. The new receiver should also handle this case.
      • Data loss when driver goes down - This is true for any streaming ingest, not just Flume. I will file a separate jira for this and we should work on it there. This is a longer term project and requires considerable development work.

      I intend to start working on these soon. Any input is appreciated. (It'd be great if someone can add me as a contributor on jira, so I can assign the jira to myself).
