Swap Management

NiFi keeps FlowFile information in memory (the JVM) but during surges of incoming data, the FlowFile information can start to take up so much of the JVM that system performance suffers. To counteract this effect, NiFi "swaps" the FlowFile information to disk temporarily until more JVM space becomes available again. These properties govern how that process occurs.




The Swap Manager implementation. The default value is org.apache.nifi.controller.FileSystemSwapManager and should not be changed.


The queue threshold at which NiFi starts to swap FlowFile information to disk. The default value is 20000.
