Subject Re: Replicate flow files to multiple processors
Date Sat, 14 Nov 2015 16:00:11 GMT
Mark, just wanted to clarify for my understanding. You said...

"NiFi does this without copying the data or anything, simply by creating a
new FlowFile that points to the same content on disk..."

-- then you said,

"So when you create two connections with the same relationship, you are
sending a copy of the FlowFile to both connections (i.e., you are
replicating it)."

I believe it is the former - WITHOUT copying the contents of the file, just
passes a reference to the file unless the content is mutated but another
processor, correct?
