It may not be possible to manage mulitple versions with ambari.

Starting an agent

An agent is started using a shell script called flume-ng which is located in the bin directory of the Flume distribution. You need to specify the agent name, the config directory, and the config file on the command line:

$ bin/flume-ng agent -n $agent_name -c conf -f conf/flume-conf.properties.template

Now the agent will start running source and sinks configured in the given properties file.

Ambari run each agent in new process. It split single configuration (on ambari screen) to multiple folders (per agent) on the node
