Thanks, Julian.  We may have to do that.  I do not want to go in that route, since we are still

Subject: Re: flume agent Error

I have issues with agents dying as well.  I have talked to several people who administer large
systems and just live with the failures by using a "supervisor" daemon that watches flume
and restarts the agent when it dies.  I have opened a bug but have yet to see a response.
 Let us know if you find a resolution.
