Subject Re: Can hadoop-consumer be time based instead of offset based
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 16:02:48 GMT
Currently, as you are iterating messages returned by SimpleConsumer, you
also get the offset for the next message. In the map, you can just run for
30 mins and save the next offset for the next run.

Thanks,
