Use linux glibc headers on OSX

I’m writing my output module for rsyslog on OSX, the IDE I choose is AppCode.

To import the folder, I created an empty project, added the whole source folder cloned from github, added following paths into ‘Header Search Paths‘(use HSP for short):

No Recursive checked.

As you can see, I have macports installed, and the json-c is installed from there.

Rsyslog also requires libestr from, I downloaded a copy and extracted, then added another line to the HSP:

After these, I can make most reference work, but the integer definitions on OSX are different from linux.
The solution is:
1 Install following packages:

2 Add these lines to HSP:

3 Remove these lines from HSP:

Newer Documentation for HttpFS(Hadoop HDFS over HTTP)

I was trying to make rsyslog v8 communicating with hadoop hdfs directly via omhdfs, but failed as it’s said officially that omhdfs is not working with rsyslog v8 by now.

UPDATE: OmHTTPFS, Another Rsyslog HDFS Output Plugin,

I was recommended to use HttpFS when setting up Hue in CDH. HttpFS is a http gateway for HDFS, originally developed by cloudera as hoop and then contributed to Apache foundation as a component of HDFS.

It’s named ‘Hadoop HDFS over HTTP’, HttpFS is a server that provides a REST HTTP gateway supporting all HDFS File System operations (read and write). And it is inteoperable with the webhdfs REST HTTP API. The latest doc can be found here.
Examples with cURL are given on that doc page:

$ curl http://httpfs-host:14000/webhdfs/v1/user/foo/README.txt returns the contents of the HDFS /user/foo/README.txt file.
$ curl http://httpfs-host:14000/webhdfs/v1/user/foo?op=list returns the contents of the HDFS /user/foo directory in JSON format.
$ curl -X POST http://httpfs-host:14000/webhdfs/v1/user/foo/bar?op=mkdirs creates the HDFS /user/ directory.

Try those, only things you can get is a HTTP 401.
You have to add, at least, a ‘’ to identify yourself, then:


The latest source of httpfs can be found in apache foundation’s svn:

Build omhdfs for Rsyslog

omhttpfs is contrib-ed to rsyslog official repo as an alternative log-to-hdfs solution.

Omhdfs is not provided as an RPM from rsyslog’s offical yum repo, so I’m trying to build on a machine with hadoop installed.
My server is CentOS 6.5, with CDH 5.1 installed.
