Time series problem - pls help

Hi! I need urgent help with a time series issue in vertica.
I am trying to create a time series query that will sum me bets per parameter given in a dashboard.
The only thing I have been able to do so far is to get the first or last value according to TS_FIRST_VALUE .I want to sum it , i don't want the first or last value.I am not able to do so.can you help me? My table is:
bets | time
--------+---------------------
2100 | 2020-09-25 01:00:00
212000 | 2020-09-25 01:00:01
1000 | 2020-09-25 01:00:02
3000 | 2020-09-25 01:00:03
11000 | 2020-09-25 01:00:04
..............................................(ofcourse I have tons of rows )
I need to create a time query where I want the bets to be summed up according to time parameter in the dashboard lets say 1 hour (but it can be any option like 15 min,30 min,1day...etc)
The only query I have been able to perform is this (there is a WITH clause before that filters the bet spins according other parameters ) and this is right after:

SELECT time, sum(first_bet) FROM (
SELECT slice_time as time, TS_FIRST_VALUE(filtered_bets) AS first_bet
FROM filtered_spins
TIMESERIES slice_time AS '1 hour' OVER ( ORDER BY time)
) AS result
GROUP BY time,result.first_bet Order by time;

it gives me this:
time | sum

  • This doesn't strike me as a time series problem. I think "time_slice" will solve this easily enough (not slice_time - yea, it's super confusing, I know). slice_time creates windows of time against which you can run time series analytics. time_slice just slices up time into discrete chunks, upon which you can perform simple aggregations (which is what you have here, I think).
    https://www.vertica.com/docs/10.1.x/HTML/Content/Authoring/SQLReferenceManual/Functions/Date-Time/TIME_SLICE.htm?zoom_highlight=time slice
    So, something like:
    select time_slice("time", 1, 'hour'), sum(bets) from filtered_spins group by 1 order by 1 desc ;

  • Curtis it worked like a charm you are a GENIUS!!!

  • Glad to hear it! I'll be sure to put "genius" on my resume. lol

  • when I do netstat -a I get this:

    tcp 0 0 localhost:6010 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5434 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:39005 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 localhost:4803 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5444 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN

    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:ssh 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5433 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN

    So it looks open.... no?

  • I think this is intended for a separate thread?
