fast online statistics collection

very simple API:

>>> import faststat
>>> stats = faststat.Stats()
>>> stats.add(point)
>>> stats.add(point)
...

The following properties are accesible on a Stats object: n, min, max, variance, skewness, and kurtosis. In addition, a Stats object tracks percentiles.

Performance is pretty good: 0.63 microseconds per point on my machine. (Provided the C module is available.)

In pure Python mode, performance is about 9 microseconds per point.
