h1. Welcome to Apache Flume! Apache Flume is a distributed, reliable, and available service for efficiently collecting, aggregating, and moving large amounts of log data. It has a simple and flexible architecture based on streaming data flows. It is robust and fault tolerant with tunable reliability mechanisms and many failover and recovery mechanisms. The system is centrally managed and allows for intelligent dynamic management. It uses a simple extensible data model that allows for online analytic application. The Flume-NG is refactoring of the first generation Flume to solve certain known issues and limitations of the original design. This is considered a preview release; bugs should be expected. Apache Flume is open-sourced under the Apache Software Foundation License v2.0. h2. Documentation Flume NG guide and FAQ are available here: * https://cwiki.apache.org/FLUME/flume-ng.html * https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLUME/Getting+Started h2.
