multiple agent configuration for flume

[ Edited ]

Hi all,


I have configured one agent for flume on one node.


We have multitenancy implemented in put cluster, so wanted to know whether we can add multiple agents each for different environment or not.


Can anyone please help me doing that?

Re: multiple agent configuration for flume

You can run multiple flume agents on one host. To do so, you would need to set up a flume service for each agent. You can't have multiples of the same role (flume agent) for a given service, but you can have multiple services, each with their own agent, configured for one host.
