Performance Management in Nifi


Performance Management in Nifi

Hi Team,

I am working on Nifi flows for my team and facing issues on managing the performance of flow while using SplitText/ReplaceText/ExtractText.

One of the workaround i got is to use 3-4 SplitText Processors, but not sure how can we do the same.

Please let me know what changes i required in my flows to ingest and transform 1 GB of data records.

PS. Please refer this link to know all of my use cases -

Thanks in advance!




Re: Performance Management in Nifi


Could you post more about the following:

  • cluster size including cores per node
  • performance bottleneck (which processor(s))
  • time to complete processing of 1GB

Here are some recommended hardware configs based on throughput & etc. can you verify you adhere (or at least close) to the reocmmendations?
