We're trying to use nifi to ingest syslogs, but syslogs can only be forwarded to a fixed IP. Since we run a nifi cluster, we're afraid that if the particular node that corresponds to the IP goes down we will be unable to ingest syslogs anymore.
Some solutions we thought of:
1. Load balancer
2. IP failover using keepalived or ucarp
Both the solutions we thought of requires external software. Does nifi have something to address this in-built?
