DESCRIPTIONThis module is the base class for implementation of the timegroup aggregator. This aggregator will split the DLF records based on a time period controlled throught the period attribute. For example, using 1d as the period value, this aggregator will group all records in the same day period together.
new( %params )Creates a new instance of a timegroup aggregator. In addition to the normal report operator parameters, the timegroup aggregator can take several parameters:
- This optional parameter contains the DLF field which contains the time value used to group the DLF records together. See the field() method for more information.
- This mandatory parameter should contains the period's length that will be used to group the records. See the period() method for more information.
field( [$new_field] )Returns the DLF field's name that is used to group the DLF records. This should be a valid timestamp DLF field in the current schema. By default, the default timestamp field of the DLF schema is used.
You can change the field by passing a $new_field parameter.
period( [$new_period])Returns the period's length in which the records are grouped. This can either be a duration value or the name of a report specification's parameter containing a duration value.
The period's length can be changed by using the $new_period parameter.
