Adds the difference between consecutive rows. If the difference is negative, it is ignored.
This function is primarily for materialized views that store data ordered by some time bucket-aligned timestamp, for example, a
toStartOfMinute bucket. Because the rows in such a materialized view will all have the same timestamp, it is impossible for them to be merged in the correct order, without storing the original, unrounded timestamp value. The
deltaSumTimestamp function keeps track of the original
timestamp of the values it's seen, so the values (states) of the function are correctly computed during merging of parts.
To calculate the delta sum across an ordered collection you can simply use the deltaSum function.
value— Input values, must be some Integer type or Float type or a Date or DateTime.
timestamp— The parameter for order values, must be some Integer type or Float type or a Date or DateTime.
- Accumulated differences between consecutive values, ordered by the
