Join us for the first Apache Flume Meetup of 2013 as we talk about deployment designs and strategies, troubleshooting, and the future of Flume.
4pm: Arrive, socialize, grab beer & pizza
4:15pm: Arvind Prabhakar on Planning and Deploying Apache Flume: This session will first introduce you to Flume at a high level and then take you through the sizing and capacity planning for your deployment. We will specifically discuss a converging flow configuration, aka fan-in flow, and highlight the way you can compute the topology details, configuration details and evaluate the hardware capacity needed to make it function to the specific requirements.
At the end of this session, you will have a clear understanding of how to plan your Flume deployment in a manner that enables you to address all your current and projected needs for the immediate future. You will also develop a deeper understanding of Flume as a distributed system and be able to build on this knowledge to plan bigger topologies or modify existing topologies where necessary.
5pm: Poll of what people are interested in discussing. Breakout sessions.
5:30pm: Beer & socializing
