Finding and Purging Flow Files

Finding and Purging Flow Files

Super Guru

"flowFilesQueued":241658

I have a lot of flowFilesqueued up. I am not sure where or how to find them. I want to delete them. I have a hundred of process groups.

{"controllerStatus":{"activeThreadCount":0,"queued":"241,658 / 2.99 GB","flowFilesQueued":241658,"bytesQueued":3209622825,"runningCount":119,"stoppedCount":429,"invalidCount":70,"disabledCount":0,"activeRemotePortCount":0,"inactiveRemotePortCount":0}}

Is there something in the UI or API to find and purge?

So the solution is go to Summary, then Connections. Sort by Queue / Size. Then delete!

Re: Finding and Purging Flow Files

The UI uses the REST API so you can do it programmatically the same way:

/flowfile-queues/{id}/drop-requests
