Subject Re: Load Balancing.

IMHO,
http://flume.apache.org/FlumeUserGuide.html#load-balancing-sink-processor
explains it well. Failover Sink processor is used in case of failure event,
but Load balancing Sink processor would be used to choose the Sink for
sending Events.

Can try this with a simple topology with two File Roll sinks, configured to
use Load Balancing Sink Processor.
