Apache NiFi Load Balancing via Load Balanced Connections

Modern Apache NiFi Load Balancing In today's Apache NiFi, there is a new and improved means of load balancing data between nodes in your cluster.   With the introduction of NiFi 1.8.0, connection load balancing has been added between every processor in any connection.    You now have an easy to set option for automatically load balancing between your nodes.   The legacy days of using Remote Process Groups to distribute load between Apache NiFi nodes is over. For maximum flexibility, performance and ease, please make sure you upgrade your existing flows to use the built-in Connection Load Balancing. If you are running newer Apache NiFI or Cloudera Flow Management ( CFM ), you have had a better way of distributing processing between processors and servers.   This is for Apache NiFi 1.8.0 and higher including the newest version 1.9.2. Note:  Remote Process Groups are no longer necessary for load balancing! Use actual load balanced connections instead! Re
