Could KNIME process real-time data ?

Hi !

I was wondering if KNIME could handle live streaming data. For instance, in the case of a real time network traffic that could be analysed. COuld KNimE be setup to read this streaming data ?



Hi Sanu,

Currently not directly. This is due to the default table based execution mode in KNIME. That is, a node must finish execution and then its output is handed off to downstream nodes. With v2.6 we have defined a new "streaming API" that is currently not used by default but which can be enabled with the executor that is provided by our (commercial) partner Pervasive (see also here and subsequent links).


Hi Bernd,

Has this feature being made available now?
