Data Pipeline Error Handling with Apache NiFi

Pieter Humphrey gives us a few techniques for handling data pipeline errors when running Apache NiFi:

The more complex the model, the more possible sources of problems exist. Forecasting every single potential problem is, of course, impossible. Identifying the most important ones and providing self-solving solutions can greatly reduce the operational uncertainty of our NiFi pipeline and improve itsĀ robustness.

To see how to do this analysis, we will consider four possible strategies: one external and three internal. They certainly do not cover all potential error scenarios, they are just examples that we can extrapolate from, and inform how to handle other potential failure domains.
