Automating Starting Services in Apache NiFi and Applying Parameters

Automating Starting Services in Apache NiFi and Applying Parameters

Automate all the things!   You can call these commands interactively or script all of them with awesome devops tools.  Andre and Dan can tell you more about that.


Enable All NiFi Services on the Canvas

By running this three times, I get any stubborn ones or ones that needed something previously running.   This could be put into a loop and check the status before trying again.

nifi pg-list
nifi pg-status
nifi pg-get-services

 The NiFi CLI has interactive help available and also some good documentation:

https://nifi.apache.org/docs/nifi-docs/html/toolkit-guide.html#nifi_CLI


/opt/demo/nifi-toolkit-1.12.1/bin/cli.sh nifi pg-enable-services  -u http://edge2ai-1.dim.local:8080 --processGroupId root  


/opt/demo/nifi-toolkit-1.12.1/bin/cli.sh nifi pg-enable-services  -u http://edge2ai-1.dim.local:8080 --processGroupId root  


/opt/demo/nifi-toolkit-1.12.1/bin/cli.sh nifi pg-enable-services  -u http://edge2ai-1.dim.local:8080 --processGroupId root  


We could then start a process group if we wanted:


nifi pg-start -u http://edge2ai-1.dim.local:8080 -pgid 2c1860b3-7f21-36f4-a0b8-b415c652fc62  


List all process groups


/opt/demo/nifi-toolkit-1.12.1/bin/cli.sh nifi pg-list -u http://edge2ai-1.dim.local:8080   


List Parameters


/opt/demo/nifi-toolkit-1.12.1/bin/cli.sh nifi list-param-contexts -u http://edge2ai-1.dim.local:8080 -verbose  


Set parameters to set parameter context for a process group, you can loop to do all.

  • pgid => parameter group id
  • pcid => parameter context id


I need to put this in a shell or python script:

/opt/demo/nifi-toolkit-1.12.1/bin/cli.sh nifi pg-set-param-context -u http://edge2ai-1.dim.local:8080 -verbose -pgid 2c1860b3-7f21-36f4-a0b8-b415c652fc62  -pcid 39f0f296-0177-1000-ffff-ffffdccb6d90


Example

https://github.com/tspannhw/ApacheConAtHome2020/blob/main/scripts/setupnifi.sh


You could also use the NiFi REST API or Dan's awesome Python API (https://nipyapi.readthedocs.io/en/latest/).

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

Using Apache NiFi in OpenShift and Anywhere Else to Act as Your Global Integration Gateway

Using Apache NiFi in OpenShift and Anywhere Else to Act as Your Global Integration Gateway What does it look like? Where Can I Run This Magic Engine: Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, VM, Bare Metal, Single Node, Laptop, Raspberry Pi or anywhere you have a 1GB of RAM and some CPU is a good place to run a powerful graphical integration and dataflow engine.   You can also run MiNiFi C++ or Java agents if you want it even smaller. Sounds Too Powerful and Expensive: Apache NiFi is Open Source and can be run freely anywhere. For What Use Cases: Microservices, Images, Deep Learning and Machine Learning Models, Structured Data, Unstructured Data, NLP, Sentiment Analysis, Semistructured Data, Hive, Hadoop, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, SOLR, ETL/ELT, MySQL CDC, MySQL Insert/Update/Delete/Query, Hosting Unlimited REST Services, Interactive with Websockets, Ingesting Any REST API, Natively Converting JSON/XML/CSV/TSV/Logs/Avro/Parquet, Excel, PDF, Word Documents, Syslog, Kafka, JMS, MQTT, TCP
