Netty Tcp or Udp Connector


The Netty Source connector opens a port that accept incoming data via the configured network protocol and publish it to a user-defined Pulsar topic. Also, this connector is suggested to be used in a containerized (e.g. k8s) deployment. Otherwise, if the connector is running in process or thread mode, the instances may be conflicting on listening to ports.
