Report on This: Apache NiFi 1.11.4 - Monitor All The Things

The easiest way to grab monitoring data is via the NiFi REST API.  Also everything in the NiFi UI is done through REST calls which you can call programmatically.   Please read the NiFi docs they are linked directly from your running NiFi application or on the web.   They are very thorough and have all the information you could want:   https://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-docs/.   If you are not running NiFi 1.11.4, I recommend you please upgrade.   This is supported by Cloudera on multiple platforms.

 

NiFi Rest API

https://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-docs/rest-api/

 

There's also an awesome Python wrapper for that REST API:  https://pypi.org/project/nipyapi/

 

Also in NiFi flow programming, every time you produce data to Kafka you get metadata back in FlowFile Attributes.   You can push those attributes directly to a kafka topic if you want.

 

So after your PublishKafkaRecord_2_0 1.11.4 so for success read the attributes on # of record and other data then AttributesToJson and push to another topic.   you may want a mergerecord in there to aggregate a few of those together.

 

If you are interested in Kafka metrics/record counts/monitoring then you must use Cloudera Streams Messaging Manager, it provides a full Web UI, Monitoring Tool, Alerts, REST API and everything you need for monitoring every producer, consumer, broker, cluster, topic, message, offset and Kafka component.

 

The best way to get NiFi stats is to use the NiFi Reporting Tasks, I like the SQL Reporting task.

 

SQL Reporting Tasks are very powerful and use standard SELECT * FROM JVM_METRICS style reporting, see my article:

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
