Plinko was originally an experiment with Prefix Trees and log parsing. The general concept is to have a single end point you can send any data to, in a "fire and forget" fashion. Plinko should identify and parse the data completely without the sending system caring what it sent. The latest version supports named fields in the STL files for tagging data parsed in the Prefix Tree and anonymous functions for parsing dynamic message payloads. We now output JSON objects and I'm working on HBase integration. By outputting to JSON it also leaves open the possibility for on the fly in memory correlation between events. Read the included README before starting, it has a quick start guide and info on the constructors.
