-Re: Flume-ng InstanceAlreadyExistsException

Venkatesh, Thanks for the reply.
My other question was the latter one as you mentioned in your reply.
Our each sinks are tied to the file channel in our configuration i.e. each
sink will have its own file channel. The number sinks will be more the
number of threads (/cores) available & I think the maximum number of
channel/sink we will hit will be 99. I hope flume-ng handles it nicely.
How does flume-ng handles incoming events when it has reached the full
memory allocated to it? Does it exit or does it rejects & return error code
to the downstream agents?
