Not able to run flume agent



I am unable to run flume agent. This is my first program in flume. I am using the config file /etc/flume/conf/ with no change in the default settings. The following command was issued

flume-ng agent -n agent --conf-file /etc/flume/conf/

But the system is throwing the following error and does not show anything thereafter. Neither it comes back to the command prompt until ^C pressed

ERROR StatusLogger No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to the console. Set system property ‘log4j2.debug’ to show Log4j2 internal initialization logging.

Please help



include conf file as part of the flume agent command
