This is a simple use case of being a smart gateway/proxy between SYSLOGand Kafka. We can do a lot more than that in NiFi. We can be a Kafka Consumer and Producer as well as read and parse all types of logs including SYSLOG. We have a GrokReader for converting semistructured logs into manageable tabular style data with schemas. Log->JSON/CSV/AVRO/PARQUET. All with No Code.

It is extremely easy to do this in NiFi.
