Flow deployments overview

A flow deployment represents a NiFi cluster running on Kubernetes and executing a specific flow definition. When you initiate the flow deployment process from the CDF Catalog, a deployment wizard helps you turn a flow definition into a flow deployment. When using the wizard, specify your environment, provide configuration parameters, auto-scaling settings and KPI definitions for your flow deployment.

Creating flow deployments
Deploy a flow definition to run NiFi flows as flow deployments in CDF. To do this, launch the Deployment wizard and specify your environment, parameters, sizing, and KPIs.
Monitoring flow deployments
The Cloudera DataFlow UI is the central monitoring console for all your deployments across environments. It is the space where you can monitor flow metrics and infrastructure usage, and manage deployments.
Using KPIs
You can use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to monitor critical parts of your NiFi deployments on the central monitoring dashboard. You do not need to drill deep into the NiFi data flow and find the metric to monitor it in NiFi. You can also choose to create alerts for your KPIs in Cloudera DataFlow.
