Exporting and Importing Data from MongoDB in the Cloud with Apache NiFi

We have data stored in a MongoDB from a third party application in Amazon.
Export from MongoDB to Parquet.
Moving data from a single purpose data silo to your Enterprise Data Lake is a common use case. Using Apache NiFi we can easily save your data from this remote silo and bring it streaming into your analytics store for machine learning and deep analytics with Impala, Hive and Spark. It doesn't matter which cloud which are coming from or going to or from cloud to on-premise or various Hybrid situations. Apache NiFi will work in all of these situations which full data lineage and provenance on what it did when.
I have created a mock dataset with Mockaroo. It's all about yummy South Jersey sandwiches.
Our Easy MongoDB Flows to Ingest Mongo data to our Date Lake and another flow to load MongoDB.
In our test, we loaded all the data from our Mock REST API into a MongoDB in the cloud. In the real world an application populated that dataset and now we need to bring it into our central data lake for analytics.
We use Jolt to replace the non-Hadoop friendly built-in MongoDB _id with a friendly name mongo_id.
Storing to Parquet on HDFS is Easy (Let's compress with Snappy)
Connecting to MongoDB is easy, setup a controller and specify the database and collection.
Our MongoDB Connection Service, just enter your URI with username/password@server.
GetHTTP URL
https://my.api.mockaroo.com/hoagie.json

GetHTTP Filename
${filename:append('hoagie.'):append(${now():format('yyyyMMddHHmmSS'):append(${md5}):append('.json')})}

JSON Path Expression
$.*

JOLT Chain
[{
"operation": "shift",
"spec": {
"_id": "mongo_id",
"*": "&"
}
}]

Mongo URI
mongodb://user:userpassword@server.cloud.com:13916/nifi
Many files stored in HDFS as Parquet

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice In Part 1, we will setup our drone, our communication environment, capture the data and do initial analysis. We will eventually grab live video stream for object detection, real-time flight control and real-time data ingest of photos, videos and sensor readings. We will have Apache NiFi react to live situations facing the drone and have it issue flight commands via UDP. In this initial section, we will control the drone with Python which can be triggered by NiFi. Apache NiFi will ingest log data that is stored as CSV files on a NiFi node connected to the drone's WiFi. This will eventually move to a dedicated embedded device running MiniFi. This is a small personal drone with less than 13 minutes of flight time per battery. This is not a commercial drone, but gives you an idea of the what you can do with drones. Drone Live Communications for Sensor Readings and Drone Control You must connect t

Advanced XML Processing with Apache NiFi 1.9.1

Advanced XML Processing with Apache NiFi 1.9.1 With the latest version of Apache NiFi, you can now directly convert XML to JSON or Apache AVRO, CSV or any other format supported by RecordWriters.   This is a great advancement.  To make it even easier, you don't even need to know the schema before hand.   There is a built-in option to Infer Schema. The results of an RSS (XML) feed converted to JSON and displayed in a slack channel. Besides just RSS feeds, we can grab regular XML data including XML data that is wrapped in a Zip file (or even in a Zipfile in an email, SFTP server or Google Docs). Get the Hourly Weather Observation for the United States Decompress That Zip  Unpack That Zip into Files One ZIP becomes many XML files of data. An example XML record from a NOAA weather station.
