Migrating Apache Flume Flows to Apache NiFi: Kafka Source to Apache Parquet on HDFS

Migrating Apache Flume Flows to Apache NiFi: Kafka Source to Apache Parquet on HDFS

Article 3 - This

This is one possible simple, fast replacement for "Flafka".   I can read any/all Kafka topics, route and transform them with SQL and store them in Apache ORC, Apache Avro, Apache Parquet, Apache Kudu, Apache HBase, JSON, CSV, XML or compressed files of many types in S3, Apache HDFS, File Systems or anywhere you want to stream this data in Real-time.   Also with a fast easy to use Web UI.   Everything you liked doing in Flume but now easier and with more Source and Sink options.

Consume Kafka And Store to Apache Parquet

Kafka to Kudu, ORC, AVRO and Parquet 

With Apache 1.10 I can send those Parquet files anywhere not only HDFS.

JSON (or CSV or AVRO or ...) and Parquet Out

In Apache 1.10, Parquet has a dedicated reader and writer

Or I can use PutParquet

Create A Parquet Table and Query It

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).
