I manually setup a Kylo on my linux recently and tried some data pipelines on it including raw data and real-time streams. Results were as expected!

Curious about IoT support of Kylo

Did anyone successfully consume streaming data coming from an Internet-of-things (IoT) source?

I am a newbie to IoT, looking where to start!

Does Kylo even support consuming sensors data?

    "Results were as expected!" - but you are not going to tell us what you expected, so that we can amuse ourselves by guessing?

    Could you please define what you mean by "streaming"?

Yes, and since Kylo is based on top off Apache NiFi, you can start with NiFi documentation.

Great starting point for Apache NiFi can be Apache NiFi Videos and video Build a Simple Flow - Part1

Good references are Apache NiFi JIRA pages. All what you have to do in first step is to create three(3) basic processor objects:

1) Receiving yours sensor data on TCP/HTTP [ListenHTTP Processor]

2) Transferring yours incoming JSON into SQL statements [ConvertJSONtoSQL Processor]

3) [PutSQL Processor] can write all data received into yours MySQl/PostgreSQL database.

In addition, I would advise very nice online presentation on this LINK.
