Syslogs coming in from a single IP for a Nifi cluster

Syslogs coming in from a single IP for a Nifi cluster

New Contributor

Hi everyone!

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?

A load balancer in front of NiFi would be the recommended solution...
