Sink implementation that can send events to an RPC server (such as
This sink forms one half of Flume's tiered collection support. Events sent to
this sink are transported over the network to the hostname / port pair using

allows Flume agents to forward to other Flume agents, forming a tiered
collection infrastructure. Of course, nothing prevents one from using this
sink to speak to other custom built infrastructure that implements the same
Events are taken from the configured
Channel in batches of the
configured batch-size. The batch size has no theoretical limits
although all events in the batch must fit in memory. Generally, larger
batches are far more efficient, but introduce a slight delay (measured in
millis) in delivery. The batch behavior is such that underruns (i.e. batches
smaller than the configured batch size) are possible. This is a compromise
made to maintain low latency of event delivery. If the channel returns a null
event, meaning it is empty, the batch is immediately sent, regardless of
size. Batch underruns are tracked in the metrics. Empty batches do not incur
an RPC roundtrip.
