That was the issue, it works now. Thanks.

Not sure if this is the issue, but I believe this configuration property is wrong:

ais_agent.sources.ais-source1.selector.mapping.default = ais-ch1

It should be:

ais_agent.sources.ais-source1.selector.default = ais-ch1

Hope that helps,
Paul Chavez

Subject: Null pointer trying to use multiplexing

Hi,

I am trying to use multiplexing. Basically, I have 1 source which sets a header field 'datatype' to either 'Position' or 'Ship'. Depending on the value, it should go to 1 of 2 channels, so the data will flow to two different files/sinks. I believe I have configured it correctly, but I keep getting a null pointer trying to start flume:

java.lang.NullPointerException
         at
org.apache.flume.channel.MultiplexingChannelSelector.getChannelListFromNames(MultiplexingChannelSelector.java:160)
         at
org.apache.flume.channel.MultiplexingChannelSelector.configure(MultiplexingChannelSelector.java:94)
         at
org.apache.flume.conf.Configurables.configure(Configurables.java:41)
Has anyone seen this error?  My setup file is below for reference.

Thanks for any help,
Steve
