Yes，I mean all event headers send from a specific agent. some headers need for all events, not only hostname. now I have to configure it on every source time and time again.
If I understand your question, using a static interceptor is the expected way to do this.
Not sure what you mean by agent header? Do you mean all event headers sent from a specific agent? I don't imagine we will be adding a command-line parameter to do this, it wouldn't be consistent and would be superfluous.
If you want to reuse a configuration file, and add a header to inform what agent it came from, perhaps you could use the hostname interceptor?

I want add some key/value to the agent header, but it's not convenient to do so. why not flume agent support --headerFile just like flume avro-client?
my requirement is :
I want use spooling source to send files to another flume node to write to hdfs.
and i want to name hdfs file to have the original file name prefix, not the full path of the orgin file.
now I have to add interceptors of conf to do that.
so I have the question, why not flume agent support --headerFile just like flume avro-client?
