Content Repository and Archival

avatar

Hi, I'm trying to understand how content repository, sizing/capping and archiving are related, reading through the Admin Guide: https://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-docs/html/administration-guide.html

By default the archive feature is disabled.

To close the loop with some offline discussions here are a few scenarios to help with the understanding:

  1. Archiving disabled. No more FlowFiles referencing the content (e.g. those processors removed already). Content is deleted (when reaching the overall threshold, to free up disk space). Provenance may still have event metadata (separate retention policies).
  2. Archiving enabled. No more FlowFiles referencing the content. The content will still be available in the archive for the lifetime of the archive.

Very old topic, but still valid. Do I understand it right, if we have no provenance enabled, it makes no sense to have the content repo archive enabled? If both is enabled, how can we recover a single flow, via the provenance window?
