Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: v1.5.0
In order to set java properties such as -X, -D, and -javaagent we have teh following:
- flume-ng takes -X and -D as native properties
- JAVA_OPTS can be placed in the flume-env.sh file
However, there is no way to set properties on the command line which do not start with -X or -D.
env JAVA_OPTS="-javaagent...." flume-ng ....
Therefore I suggest we introduce FLUME_JAVA_OPTS which sets properties from the env starting the flume-ng command. This will not impact users who use JAVA_OPTs in the non-flume environment incompatibly with flume.
