Flume 1.2.0 released

Listen:

The Apache Flume Team released yesterday the next large release with number 1.2.0. Here a overview about the fixes and additions (thanks Mike, I copy your overview):

Apache Flume 1.2.0 is the third release under the auspices of Apache of the so-called "NG" codeline, and our first release as a top-level Apache project! Flume 1.2.0 has been put through many stress and regression tests, is stable, production-ready software, and is backwards-compatible with Flume 1.1.0. Four months of very active development went into this release: a whopping 192 patches were committed since 1.1.0, representing many features, enhancements, and bug fixes. While the full change log can be found in the link below, here are a few new feature highlights:

* New durable file channel 
* New client API 
* New HBase sinks (two different implementations) 
* New Interceptor interface (a plugin processing API) 
* New JMX-based monitoring support

With this release - the first after evolving into a tier 1 Apache project - we've updated the website and firstly have a well written UserGuide (again thanks to Mike and Ralph for their great effort).

User-Guide: http://flume.apache.org/FlumeUserGuide.html
Api-Documention:  http://flume.apache.org/releases/content/1.2.0/apidocs/

What's the next?
Now, we got a increasing interest into a Windows version. I don't know why, but that's happen. I try to port some of the sinks into a Windows Platform - if you're a Windows Developer and you've time to spent into the project, all hands are welcome.

Deal with corrupted messages in Apache Kafka

Under some strange circumstances it can happen that a message in a Kafka topic is corrupted. This happens often by using 3rd party frameworks together with Kafka. Additionally, Kafka < 0.9 has no lock at Log.read() at the consumer read level, but has a lock on Log.write(). This can cause a rare race condition, as described in KAKFA-2477 [1]. Probably a log entry looks like: ERROR Error processing message, stopping consumer: (kafka.tools.ConsoleConsumer$) kafka.message.InvalidMessageException: Message is corrupt (stored crc = xxxxxxxxxx, computed crc = yyyyyyyyyy Kafka-Tools Kafka stores the offset of every consumer in Zookeeper. To read out the offsets, Kafka provides handy tools [2]. But also zkCli.sh can be used, at least to display the consumer and the stored offsets. First we need to find the consumer for a topic (> Kafka 0.9): bin/kafka-consumer-groups.sh --zookeeper management01:2181 --describe --group test Prior to Kafka 0.9 the only possibility to get this inform

Hive query shows ERROR "too many counters"

A hive job face the odd " Too many counters:"  like Ended Job = job_xxxxxx with exception 'org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.counters.LimitExceededException(Too many counters: 201 max=200)' FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.MapRedTask Intercepting System.exit(1) These happens when operators are used in queries ( Hive Operators ). Hive creates 4 counters per operator, max upto 1000, plus a few additional counters like file read/write, partitions and tables. Hence the number of counter required is going to be dependent upon the query.  To avoid such exception, configure " mapreduce.job.counters.max " in mapreduce-site.xml to a value above 1000. Hive will fail when he is hitting the 1k counts, but other MR jobs not. A number around 1120 should be a good choice. Using " EXPLAIN EXTENDED " and " grep -ri operators | wc -l " print out the used numbers of operators. Use this value to tweak the MR s
