Jason Kushmaul commented on FLUME-2498:

I added a new ticket FLUME-2994 to add windows support to taildir
and patch available.

[~hn_mting], you should create a new ticket.

> This is the proposal of implementing a new tailing source.
> This source watches the specified files, and tails them in nearly real-time 
> once appends are detected to these files.
> * This source is reliable and will not miss data even when the tailing files 
> rotate.
> * It periodically writes the last read position of each file in a position 
> file using the JSON format.
> * If Flume is stopped or down for some reason, it can restart tailing from 
> the position written on the existing position file.
> * It can add event headers to each tailing file group. 
> A attached patch includes a config documentation of this.
> This source requires Unix-style file system and Java 1.7 or later.
