> The javadocs and sample config files are out of date with respect to valid agent configurations.
The docs and sample file also mention "host" instead of "agent", which can get confused with
the hostname of a machine. The agent name specified in the config file should by convention
be named "agent" to make it clearer. An agent name specified in the config file (props file)
is what needs to get passed to the '\-n' option when running the flume-ng script. The affected
code should also be updated to reflect this 'host' to 'agent' change.
