That would depend on the channel.
AFAIK, all the channels provided are FIFO without expiration but technically you could implement a channel that does that.

You could achieve some priority management using multiplexing.

Can anyone confirm my understanding that there is neither priority of flume events nor expiry of events in flume 1.6.0?

I could not find it in Steve Hoffman's book nor in the user manual.

If so, are there plans to add it in the future?
