Thanks for the reply. However I think "Failover Sink processor" is not
solving the issue. My problem is how to manage failover for the Source ?
Like in this case if server on which Flume Source is present is crashed,
Router does not know where to send syslogs.
I was think if something like Red Hat CLustering could be used ? What do
you think ?
