4. Start Flume

There are two options for starting Flume.

  • Start Flume directly. On the Flume host:

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/flume-agent start
  • Start Flume as a service. On the Flume host:

    service flume-agent start


Hadoop administrators planning to run Flume as a service must assign the name agent as the service name for all relevant configuration settings in flume-conf.
