Re: Avro sink to source is too slow
My thoughts...You have 4 sinks draining the same channel and each has a
batch size 1000. Since they will contend on the same channel & *assuming*
events are evenly distributed among the sinks, there is potential for some
starvation happening in the sinks as their batch sizes may not be reached
until about 4 batches  are inserted by the source. I dont know if there is
a good thumb rule here.

try these:
-  See if sink batch size of 250 helps.
-  Using a single avro sink instead of 4 with batch size of 1k.
-  Replacing the  avro sink with the null sink on the first agent and take
a measurement. it would be good to ensure spool source is not the bottle
