Benefit of Apache Flume

2014-01-10T20:52:16

I am new with Apache Flume. I understand that Apache Flume can help transport data.

But I still fail to see the ultimate benefit offered by Apache Flume. If I can configure a software or make a software to send which data goes where, why I need Flume?

Maybe someone can explain a situation that shows Apache Flume's benefit?
