experimental.stddev() function

experimental.stddev() is subject to change at any time.

experimental.stddev() returns the standard deviation of non-null values in the _value column for each input table.

Standard deviation modes

The following modes are avaialable when calculating the standard deviation of data.

sample

Calculate the sample standard deviation where the data is considered to be part of a larger population.

population

Calculate the population standard deviation where the data is considered a population of its own.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[{A with _value: float}], ?mode: string) => stream[{A with _value: float}]
For more information, see Function type signatures.

Parameters

mode

Standard deviation mode or type of standard deviation to calculate. Default is sample.

Available options:

  • sample
  • population

tables

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

Examples

Return the standard deviation in input tables

import "experimental"
import "sampledata"

sampledata.float()
    |> experimental.stddev()

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.

For information about the future of Flux, see the following:
