Summary

In this chapter we covered the following various interceptors shipped with Flume:

  • Timestamp: This is used to add a timestamp header, possibly overwriting an existing one.
  • Host: This is used to add the Flume agent host name or IP as a header in the event.
  • Static: This is used to add static String headers.
  • Regular expression filtering: This is used to include or exclude events based on a matched regular expression.
  • Regular expression extractor: This is used to create headers from matched regular expression headers. It is also useful for routing with channel selectors.
  • Custom: This is used to create any custom transformations you need that you can't find elsewhere.

We also covered tiering data flows using the Avro Source and Sink.
