No, it does not mean your channel dropped data. It just means that the sink tried to read data 695 times from the channel, but the channel could only return 471 - obviously because only that many events were written in the first place.

> Does the difference between the channel.take.attempt == 695 and take.success == 471 indicate that my channel dropped data, or does it indicate that the channel tried to grab from the source but did not get data from it? There is a period when the Avro RPC call connects where it is not fully socketed, so maybe the channel is grabbing air? If so, that is ok. If it indicates data got lost, that is not acceptable and hopefully someone can help me correct the root cause there.
