experimental.alignTime() is subject to change at any time.
By using this function, you accept the risks of experimental functions.
experimental.alignTime() shifts time values in input tables to all start at a common start time.
Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[B], ?alignTo: A) => stream[C] where B: Record, C: Record
Time to align tables to. Default is
Input data. Default is piped-forward data (
Compare month-over-month values
- Window data by calendar month creating two separate tables (one for January and one for February).
- Align tables to
Each output table represents data from a calendar month. When visualized, data is still grouped by month, but timestamps are aligned to a common start time and values can be compared by time.
import "experimental" data |> window(every: 1mo) |> experimental.alignTime(alignTo: 2021-01-01T00:00:00Z)
