Subject Re: Newbie question on using the Syslog agent in Flume
Date Mon, 24 Nov 2014 23:50:07 GMT
Hi David,

The configuration you shared sets up a Flume Agent to listen in for Syslog
messages using UDP transport on port 5140. Hence Flume itself acts as the
receiver of the messages and not the sender.
