Start a Flume Agent

You can start a Flume agent with the following command:
 /opt/mapr/flume/flume-<version>/bin/flume-ng agent --conf-file <path to conf file> -name <agent name>
Note: To send debugging output to the console, add the flag -Dflume.root.logger=DEBUG,console. To send debugging output to a log file, add the flag -Dflume.root.logger=DEBUG,LOGFILE. You can configure the location of this logfile in the flume-<version>/conf/log4j.properties file.
