Nifi TailFile processor on Remote Hosts.

Explorer

Nifi is running on host name nifihost (host1).

Some log text files stored on texfilehost (host2).

These are different hosts .

TailFile only works on a local system (nifihost).

Is it possible to ingest data from the files on the other host (texfilehost / host2) with nifi ?

You can run tailFile with minifi agent on host2 and send data to the nifi instance on host 1. https://nifi.apache.org/minifi/
