This processor is deprecated and may be removed in the near future. Listens for Lumberjack messages being sent to a given port over TCP. Each message will be acknowledged after successfully writing the message to a FlowFile. Each FlowFile will contain data portion of one or more Lumberjack frames. In the case where the Lumberjack frames contain syslog messages, the output of this processor can be sent to a ParseSyslog processor for further processing.
