-Does Flume NG requires to be installed on all the sources?

I have used Flume 0.9.3 a while back, it worked fine at that time.
Now, I am looking to use 'Flume NG', started reading documentation today.
In Flume 0.9.3, I installed flume agents on the servers wherever I had the
data source. And, I had a collector machine separately. My sink was
HDFS. I see that Flume NG is using Channel.
My question is that I have multiple source servers and my sink is HDFS.
I also have another machine for Channel (collector in old days). Do I
need to install flume NG in all the source machines and Channel machine?
Or can I install flume NG only on the Channel server and (somehow) specify
in the configuration to pull data from source machines and specify the sink
Thanks in advance for your replies..
