    • setEarlyResultsPeriod

      public SlidingWindowDefinition setEarlyResultsPeriod​(long earlyResultPeriodMs)
      Description copied from class: WindowDefinition
      Sets the period in milliseconds at which the windowed aggregation stage will emit partial results of all the windows that contain some data, but the watermark hasn't yet advanced enough to close them and emit the final results.

      Consider this example: we're collecting a 1-minute tumbling window of stock exchange data. The results we're getting pertain to the minute that just elapsed, but we'd also like to detect any sudden changes within the running minute. We can set the early results period to 1000 ms and get an update every second for the window that's currently being filled with data.

      Note that, for a sliding window, there will be many incomplete windows that contain some data and you'll get the early results for all of them. Similarly, if you configure a high-enough maxLag for the event timestamps, there can be more than one tumbling/session window with early results.

      The default value is zero, which means "don't emit early results".

      setEarlyResultsPeriod in class WindowDefinition
      earlyResultPeriodMs - the period in milliseconds from one start of the emission of early results to the next one
    • windowSize

      public long windowSize()
      Returns the length of the window (the size of the timestamp range it covers). It is an integer multiple of slideBy().
    • slideBy

      public long slideBy()
      Returns the size of the sliding step.
