While Pierre’s solution will probably be more helpful in the long run, this provides an
easy way for me to examine the data by hand right now. I didn’t know that metric was on
the Status History window, good to now!

In the UI you can right-click on a Processor and go to "View Status History" to see a chart
of different metrics
over time. One of those metrics is the Average Lineage Duration (averaged over a 5-minute
Of course, you are asking for a reporting task/processor that does this. There's nothing that
provides this info
directly, but you could always use InvokeHTTP, or something like that to poll the REST API,
using the path
/nifi-api/flow/processors/<Processor ID>/status/history

Or, another approach that may be valuable would be to use the SiteToSiteProvenanceReportingTask
to send
Provenance Events via Site-to-Site back to the NiFi instance. For a given Provenance Event,
you can get Event Time
and Lineage Start Date, so to calculate the Lineage Duration / latency for the FlowFile, you
can just use
EventTime - LineageStartDate. This approach would be a little different, as it provides lineage
duration of each event.
So this could be used, for instance, to detect any particular FlowFiles that exceed some SLA
or calculate a 90th percentile
type of thing, rather than getting an average.

Does this help at all?

Is there a reporting task/processor that will let me aggregate Lineage Duration’s for a
point in time so I can monitor my flow using this metric?
