NiFI for Apache - the flow using records and registry

Presentation

In a previous guide, we’ve setup MiNiFi on Web servers to export Apache access log event to a central NiFi server. Then we saw an example of flow build in this NiFi server to handle this flow. This flow was using standard NiFi processors, manipulating each event as a string. Now, we will start a new flow, achieving the same purpose but using a record oriented approach.
We will then discover the ease of use of the record oriented flow files and how it can speed up the deployment of a flow.
