A jar with custom flume components under default plugin folders /usr/lib/flume-ng/plugins.d or /var/lib/flume-ng/plugins.d is not picked up by Flume.
I don't event see these folders included in the classpath.
All works just fine if I add my jar to one of the default CP folders, e.g.
Did anyone have a similar issue?
Spot on, I missed the directory structure and just dumped my jars under plugins.d.
The cmd line did not give me clues since it did not have anything related to plugin directories, e.g. "--plugins-path /usr/lib/flume-ng/plugins.d:/var/lib/flume-ng/plugins.d".
