Has anyone tried using a Apache NiFi on Raspberry Pi?

Contributor

Raspberry Pi is a very inexpensive system often hooked up to variety of sensors. It will be useful to use Raspberry Pi as the host for Apache NiFi to ingest and coordinate the data from sensors before transporting the stream to alerting system or persistent storage

According to Joe W this was working. There are a few variants of RPI, so don't expect wonders, but it's absolutely possible for a scaled down instance with correct expectations.

I have a Beagle Board Black that I can try it on. Any use case ideas?

Rasbian (default Pi OS) ships with the 1.8 JDK, so it should work fine.

I've tried HDP on a Pi. Works pretty good. Will add Nifi to my list of things to POC...

@Landon Robinson Do you have a doc or your own cheat sheet? If so then it would nice to have an article published here.

I have some notes but nothing formal cobbled together. Most stuff goes on hadoopsters.net when I learn about it. I'm hoping to publish some more on Falcon here very soon. The article feature makes it easy.

Share would be great. I have one built, just have to image the micro SD cards.

Re: Has anyone tried using a Apache NiFi on Raspberry Pi?

Have run on both BeagleBone Black and the latest Rapsberry PI (not zero). Works quite well but Pi is considerably faster. It is slow to start as we load a lot of classes in the beginning but on a Pi type system you can certainly remove extraneous Nars. I think you can expect around 30MB/s of throughput and about 10K events/s with full features activated.
