Aggregate Operator Tuple Dimension Sample

This topic explains AggregateByTup.sbapp, the Aggregate operator tuple dimension sample.

This sample demonstrates two uses of the tuple-based Aggregate operator. The first uses a tuple-based Aggregate operator to calculate a moving average of price for each of four successive trades of a given stock. It also ensures that the aggregation works for intermixed tuples for different stocks. The second provides a sequence number for input tuples, using a window which does not close and the emit feature to emit an output tuple for every input tuple.

Running AggregateByTup.sbapp in StreamBase Studio

  1. In the Package Explorer, double-click to open the AggregateByTup.sbapp application. Make sure the application is the currently active tab in the EventFlow Editor.

  2. Click the Run button. This opens the SB Test/Debug perspective and starts the application.

  3. In the Application Output view, select the AvgPricePSOut output stream. No output is displayed at this point, but the dequeuer is prepared to receive output. This view will eventually show the output of the application.

  4. In the Manual Input view, select the TradesIn input stream.

  5. Enter AMAT and 23 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  6. Click Send Data, and observe that no output is displayed yet in the Application Output view.

  7. Enter AMAT and 24 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  8. Click Send Data, and observe that no output is displayed yet in the Application Output view.

  9. Again enter AMAT and 24 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  10. Click Send Data. There is still no output in the Application Output view.

  11. Enter AMAT and 25 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  12. Click Send Data, and observe this line in the Application Output view:

    Symbol=AMAT, MovingAverage=24.0

    Tip

    If output data is too long to easily see in the Application Output table, click a row to display its field data in the Display Fields pane below the table.

  13. Enter AMAT and 20 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  14. Click Send Data, and observe this line in the Application Output view:

    Symbol=AMAT, MovingAverage=23.25

  15. Enter AMAT and 21 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  16. Click Send Data, and observe this line in the Application Output view:

    Symbol=AMAT, MovingAverage=22.5

  17. Enter AMAT and 21 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  18. Click Send Data, and observe this line in the Application Output view:

    Symbol=AMAT, MovingAverage=21.75

  19. Enter AMAT and 22 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  20. Click Send Data, and observe this line in the Application Output view:

    Symbol=AMAT, MovingAverage=21.0

  21. Enter INTC and 27 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  22. Click Send Data, and observe no further output is displayed yet in the Application Output view.

  23. Enter INTC and 28 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  24. Click Send Data, and observe no further output is displayed yet in the Application Output view:

  25. Enter AMAT and 22 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  26. Click Send Data, and observe this line in the Application Output view:

    Symbol=AMAT, MovingAverage=21.5

  27. Enter INTC and 27 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  28. Click Send Data, and observe no further output is displayed yet in the Application Output view:

  29. Enter AMAT and 23 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  30. Click Send Data, and observe this line in the Application Output view:

    Symbol=AMAT, MovingAverage=22.0

  31. Enter INTC and 28 in the Symbol, and PricePerShare fields, respectively.

  32. Click Send Data, and observe this line in the Application Output view:

    Symbol=INTC, MovingAverage=27.5

  33. Next, view the sequence number.

  34. In the Application Output view, select the SeqOut output stream. No output is displayed at this point, but the dequeuer is prepared to receive output.

  35. Change from Manual Input to the Feed Simulations view.

  36. Right click on SeqFeed.sbfs and select Run Feed Simulation.

  37. Notice on output how sequence_number increases by 1.

  38. When done, press F9 or click the Stop Running Application button.

Running AggregateByTup.sbapp in Terminal Windows

This section describes how to run the sample in UNIX terminal windows or Windows command prompt windows. On Windows, be sure to use the StreamBase Command Prompt from the Start menu as described in the Test/Debug Guide, not the default command prompt.

  1. Open three terminal windows on UNIX, or three StreamBase Command Prompts on Windows. In each window, navigate to the directory where the sample is installed, or to your workspace copy of the sample, as described above.

  2. In window 1, type:

    sbd AggregateByTup.sbapp

  3. In window 2, type:

    sbc dequeue AvgPricePSOut

    No output is displayed at this point, but the dequeuer is prepared to receive output. This window will eventually show the output of the application.
