Hi Team,

I am doing some performance testing in NiFi. WorkFlow is GetSFTP -> update -> 
PutKafka. I want to tune my setup to achieve high throughput without much 
But my throughput average drops during flowfile checkpointing duration. I 
believe stop-the-world  is happening during that time.

I can roughly read ~100MB/s from SFTP and send almost same to Kafka. But every 
2 mins, it stops the complete execution. Check below logs

I think all processor goes in idle state for 39 seconds ☹ .. Please guide how 
to tune it..
I changed the heap memory with 32G [I am testing on 12 core, 48G machine]. I 
disabled content-repository archiving. All other properties remains same.

Thanks & Regards,
