Assume you have a source delivering to three channels as shown in this picture.screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-93448-pm.png

In case of replicating flow, each event is sent to all three channels. For the multiplexing case, an event is delivered to a subset of available channels when an event’s attribute matches a preconfigured value. For example, if an event attribute called “txnType” is set to “customer”, then it should go to channel1 and channel3, if it’s “vendor” then it should go to channel2, otherwise channel3. The mapping can be set in the agent’s configuration file.
