RE: where to Find flume-ng logs
Using that method, if we have multiple agents, they all append to the same flume.log file.

Is there way to create separate log file for each agent without creating separate folder for each flume-Ng configuration?

You've to add the log4j.properties into the classpath:

bin/flume-ng agent -n <agent> -f <configfile> --conf <config directory>

<config directory> means the directory where log4j.properties is located

In log4j.properties be sure you've the correct path:
