We can see when data arrives in NiFi from a MiNiFi Agent.



 We can publish to Kafka directly from our MiNiFi C++ agent.


If CEM/Edge Flow Manager is a mystery to you, check out the live Swagger REST Documentation.


With MiNiFi C++ I can add a USB Camera.




 In NiFi we can see the Host Information that MiNiFi attached.

Using Apache NiFi - MiNiFi C++ Agent Elsewhere

I am working on a Jetbot robot powered by NVidia Jetson Nano that will use the MiNiFi C++ agent.
