OK, my recommendation would be to change to the WriteAheadProvenanceRepository. You can do this by
changing the value of the "nifi.provenance.repository.implementation" property in nifi.properties to
The WriteAhead implementation was written several releases back, but we left Persistent Provenance Repo
as the default just to ensure that the Write-Ahead implementation was stable enough. At this point, it's pretty
clear that it is not only much faster than the Persistent Prov Repo but also far more stable. There is a JIRA 
to make this the new default.
The nice thing is that it is backward compatible, so if you change to the WriteAhead impl and restart, you should
still be able to query all of your existing data without losing anything.
OK, thanks. Are you using the default implementation of the Provenance Repository? I.e., the PersistentProvenanceRepository?

What version of NiFi are you running?
