      Description

      In the FlumeAvroManager in the send method, the code looks like this:

      @Override
      public synchronized void send(final Event event) {
      if (rpcClient == null)

      { rpcClient = connect(agents, retries, connectTimeout, requestTimeout); }

      if (rpcClient != null) {
      try

      { rpcClient.append(event); }

      catch (final Exception ex) {.........

      if the rpcClient is null and the connect fails the rpcClient is still null and the method returns losing the event. I think this is a bug.

      Thanks
