Installing the Flume Tarball
The Flume tarball is a self-contained package containing everything needed to use Flume on a Unix-like system. To install Flume from the tarball, you unpack it in the appropriate directory.
To install the Flume tarball on Linux-based systems:
- Run the following commands, replacing the (component_version) with the current version numbers for Flume and CDH.
$ cd /usr/local/lib $ sudo tar -zxvf <path_to_flume-ng-(Flume_version)-cdh(CDH_version).tar.gz> $ sudo mv flume-ng-(Flume_version)-cdh(CDH_version) flume-ng
$ cd /usr/local/lib $ sudo tar -zxvf <path_to_flume-ng-1.4.0-cdh5.0.0.tar.gz> $ sudo mv flume-ng-1.4.0-cdh5.0.0 flume-ng
- To complete the configuration of a tarball installation, you must set your PATH variable to include the bin/ subdirectory
of the directory where you installed Flume. For example:
$ export PATH=/usr/local/lib/flume-ng/bin:$PATH
