Re: Proper documentation for setting up sink groups

Did you read this: http://flume.apache.org/FlumeUserGuide.html#flume-sink-processors

That explains how to use sink groups. Also there is nothing wrong with multiple sinks taking events from one channel. This is an especially useful configuration if you have a very fast source and much slower sinks.
