We can have multiple destinations in Flume using multiplexing of event flow. From the below diagram we can see that the source from agent “foo” is fanning out the flow to 3 different channels. We will see about fan out in the next topic, here fan out can be replicating or multiplexing. Each sink has different destinations. We pass the events through replicating or multiplexer. The mapping is set in the agent’s configuration file.
