The TIBCO Streaming® Descriptive Statistics Operator is used to provide basic statistical information for each specified variable including measures of central tendency (e.g. mean) and of dispersion (e.g. standard deviation).
This section describes the properties you can set for this adapter, using the various tabs of the Properties view in StreamBase Studio.
Name: Use this required field to specify or change the name of this instance of this component, which must be unique in the current EventFlow module. The name must contain only alphabetic characters, numbers, and underscores, and no hyphens or other special characters. The first character must be alphabetic or an underscore.
Operator: A read-only field that shows the formal name of the operator.
Class name: Shows the fully qualified class name that implements the functionality of this adapter. If you need to reference this class name elsewhere in your application, you can right-click this field and select Copy from the context menu to place the full class name in the system clipboard.
Start options: This field provides a link to the Cluster Aware tab, where you configure the conditions under which this adapter starts.
Enable Error Output Port: Select this check box to add an Error Port to this component. In the EventFlow canvas, the Error Port shows as a red output port, always the last port for the component. See Using Error Ports to learn about Error Ports.
Description: Optionally enter text to briefly describe the component's purpose and function. In the EventFlow Editor canvas, you can see the description by pressing Ctrl while the component's tooltip is displayed.
|Log Level||Controls the level of verbosity the adapter uses to send notifications to the console. This setting can be higher than the containing application's log level. If set lower, the system log level is used. Available values, in increasing order of verbosity, are: OFF, ERROR, WARN, INFO, DEBUG, TRACE.|
|Lower quartile||If enabled, the lower quartile ( the value for which 25% of the observations lie below and 75% above that value) for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Maximum||If enabled, the maximum value for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Mean||If enabled, the mean or average for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Median||If enabled, the median (the value for which 50% of the observations lie above and below that value) for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Median absolute deviation||If enabled, the median absolute deviation for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Minimum||If enabled, the minimum value for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Missing data deletion||Specifies the missing data to be used the by the Descriptive Statistics Operator when
|N||If enabled, the number of observations for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Standard deviation||If enabled, the sample standard deviation for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Sum||If enabled, the sum for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Upper quartile||If enabled, the upper quartile (the value for which 75% of the observations lie below and 25% above that value) for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Variance||If enabled, the sample variance for each specified variable will be computed.|
|Variable list||Specify the list of variables for the analysis. Regular expression matching is supported.|
Use the settings in this tab to allow this operator or adapter to start and stop based on conditions that occur at runtime in a cluster with more than one node. During initial development of the fragment that contains this operator or adapter, and for maximum compatibility with TIBCO Streaming releases before 10.5.0, leave the Cluster start policy control in its default setting, Start with module.
Cluster awareness is an advanced topic that requires an understanding of StreamBase Runtime architecture features, including clusters, quorums, availability zones, and partitions. See Cluster Awareness Tab Settings on the Using Cluster Awareness page for instructions on configuring this tab.
Use the Concurrency tab to specify parallel regions for this instance of this component, or multiplicity options, or both. The Concurrency tab settings are described in Concurrency Options, and dispatch styles are described in Dispatch Styles.
Concurrency settings are not suitable for every application, and using these settings requires a thorough analysis of your application. For details, see Execution Order and Concurrency, which includes important guidelines for using the concurrency options.
