I've modified servers to log directly to a flume collector agent by
rpcClient.appendBatch(...). I want to modify the server applications to
verify the collector agent is running immediately at start up and exit
if there is no flume collector agent to log to. Is the best way to do
this to simply RpcClientFactory.getDefaultInstance(hostname, port) and
if no FlumeException thrown proceed?
