stateDuration() function

stateDuration() returns the cumulative duration of a given state.

The state is defined by the fn predicate function. For each consecutive record that evaluates to true, the state duration is incremented by the duration of time between records using the specified unit. When a record evaluates to false, the value is set to -1 and the state duration is reset. If the record generates an error during evaluation, the point is discarded, and does not affect the state duration.

The state duration is added as an additional column to each record. The duration is represented as an integer in the units specified.

Note: As the first point in the given state has no previous point, its state duration will be 0.

Parameters

fn

(Required) Predicate function that identifies the state of a record.

column

Column to store the state duration in. Default is stateDuration.

timeColumn

Time column to use to calculate elapsed time between rows. Default is _time.

unit

Unit of time to use to increment state duration. Default is 1s (seconds).

Example units:

  • 1ns (nanoseconds)
  • 1us (microseconds)
  • 1ms (milliseconds)
  • 1s (seconds)
  • 1m (minutes)
  • 1h (hours)
  • 1d (days)

tables

Input data. Default is piped-forward data (<-).

Examples

Return the time spent in a specified state

import "sampledata"

sampledata.int()
    |> stateDuration(fn: (r) => r._value < 15)
