Subject Re: Interest in a time series simulator processor for NiFi

Yes.   It will be very useful in testing flows that will run in non-perfect environments. 
 This will be much more elegant than using several generate flow files in parallel with different

and more importantly generated data like one. I have wrapped another Apache 2 licensed project
TSimulus[1] that generates realistic time series data driven by a JSON configuration file.
The idea is that this can be used to simulate a more IoT-like scenario. More than anything
I am just trying to see if this is something that has value outside of my little world.
