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/
