Would recommend you grab a thread dump and see what the 'main' thread is doing.
(kill -3 <nifi pid>) or (bin/ dump thread-dump.txt) or (jstack <nifi pid>).

That will tell you what it's doing.

Am getting this error in the nifi-app.log file on start attempt:

ERROR [ Framework Task Thread Thread-3] .o.a.n.controller.tasks.ExpireFlowFiles Failed to
expire FlowFiles due to java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot update repository until record
recovery has been performed

I have nearly 1000 prov.gz files in my provenance_repository. Could it be that the system
is taking a long time to restore flowfiles to state?
