Can you check the agent logs, and send me what you have if the problem
isn't obvious?  [Off-list, I think, is best]

The format of the data transmission is a sequence of Chukwa Chunks,
serialized in a well-defined way.  It should be absolutely OK to mix
and match Hadoop jar versions between agent and collector. That sort
of configuration has been extensively tested -- a number of sites have
similar Hadoop version mixes.
