Subject Re: Nifi Benchmark/Performance tests

Hello, Mans,

Benchmarking can be tricky and results difficult to compare, specially for
Nifi because it may depend also on external systems (depending on the
processors you want to test), connectivity/bandwidth, etc.

For all internal interaction (fully controlled environment within a
cluster) I can confirm Joe's rough numbers. In a macbook pro I can easily
run my test flows at ~140MB/s (mainly receiving files via ListenHTTP, then
MergeContent and PutHDFS - with some UpdateAttibute, etc). You need to
tweak some config settings and configure multiple threads, etc in the
processors but nothing advanced. In the cluster this can go up to 800MB/s
using basic load balancing.

I noticed some improvement in 0.3.0, but I cannot guarantee that some other
changes in the rest of the flow did not affect. So I fully agree with Joe
that a set of specific benchmarks are needed as a reference. Those can also
double as blueprints for best practices and examples. I can contribute here.
