Hi,
I have a four node MapR cluster and I have Flume installed (yum install mapr-flume) there. I am planning to read log files from external servers (Web server, JMS server etc). Do I need to install Flume agent on all of those source servers?

None of my source servers has MapR installed, therefore  (yum install mapr-flume) command is not applicable there. What's the best way to read log files from those server using Flume?
