If you change the configurations, the flume will automatically restart the sources, channels and sinks. Since the source is commented the flume agent is not receiving the data and hence no data is received in Sink
P.S. I'm using Flume 1.5.2.

I have to move my Flume agent to another machine, so I comment the source to disable it in my configuration file. And I leave other configurations as they are to let the sink finish uploading the data stored in the channel to HDFS.
However, several days passed, there are still the same amount of data in the channel, the sink seems have stopped working too. What may be the problem?
