Subject Re: Round robin with backoff

Yes, thats the correct configuration. We had such an parameter in Flume, but removed them
later as we clean up the code. RANDOM is working like ROUND_ROBIN_BACKOFF.

indicates that there is a Round_robin_backoff but this threw an error. It looks like there
is a constant with this type defined in code, but it is not used anywhere. The code seemed
to indicate that the below should achieve a backoff for Round Robin though there is not documentation
about the processor.backoff parameter. Is the below the right way to perform a round robin
with backoff?
