I am prototyping Apache Flume. My task is to transfer text file contents between two Ubuntu VMs I set up using VirtualBox. I have almost no knowledge of Flume, although I have been going through their documentation.
With VirtualBox I was able to create an Internal Network, and the two VMs are successfully able to ping each other.
I was also able to download and configure flume as shown: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLUME/Getting+Started
My point being that Flume is installed and works on both VMs (or so I think).
This post give me a slight idea: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19112465/flume-data-transferring-to-server a
So, do I implement exactly that flume.conf file on each VM? And do I need write Java to do this?
Also, I found this video, around the 18 min mark this guy does almost exactly what I want. However, I would like the input to be a text file.
