is flume channel configured as a file channel? You can use the strings command on the channel log file. Kind of a roundabout way of doing this. But, to your question, no there is no debug mode that I know of to print each event passing through flume

I was hoping this would, but I see only the contents being passed and not the message headers.  I quickly tested using the console producer to console consumer and get only what I enter via stdin.  Is there some way to put this into a debug level to see more?

Use the Kafka console utility to see what's being fed to Kafka.

Ideally as they appear passing through broker in topic and at the input to another agent source. This is where I need to parse them and make routing decisions.

Where do you want to see the headers? After the event lands on HDFS? Use the Header and body serializer if you using text, avro serializer writes out the headers.

Is there a debug level or other Flume 1.6 utility I can use to see the full message headers?  I need to see what's being collected in the spooldir source and sent via kafka sink, specifically the values of fileHeader and basenameHeader data.

Tks!
