FAQ
Hi all,

I don't know where to report this since the JIRA on cloudera seems to be a
private one.

Basically, assign a Flume instance to your host and then try and use a
filechannel with only a filename (no path).

By default, this tries and create the file in the .flume directory off the
user's home directory. For some reason, the cloudera manager sets this to
/var/run/flume-ng. The problem is, the installer doesn't seem to create
this directory.

To solve the problem, just mkdir -p /var/run/flume-ng/.flume and then chown
the whole things to flume:flume.

Restart the flume agent and everything starts working again.
