redis-tdigest

Build Status

This is a Redis module for the t-digest data structure which can be used for accurate online accumulation of rank-based statistics such as quantiles and cumulative distribution at a point. The implementation is based on the Merging Digest implementation by the author.

Building & Loading

Before going ahead, make sure that the Redis server you're using has support for Redis modules.

First, you'll have to build the Redis t-digest module from source.

make

This should generate a shared library called tdigest.so in the root folder. You can now load it into Redis by using the following redis.conf configuration directive:

loadmodule /path/to/tdigest.so

Alternatively, you can load it on an already running Redis server by issuing the following commands:

MODULE LOAD /path/to/tdigest.so

API

TDIGEST.NEW key [compression]

Initializes a key to an empty t-digest structure with the compression provided or with the default compression of 400.

Reply: "OK"

TDIGEST.ADD key value count [value count ...]

Adds a value with the specified count. If key is missing, an empty t-digest structure is initialized with a default compression of 400. Returns the sum of counts for all values added.

Reply: long long

TDIGEST.MERGE destkey sourcekey [sourcekey ...]

Merges one or more sourcekey into destkey. If destkey is missing, an empty t-digest structure is initialized with a default compression of 400.

Reply: "OK"

TDIGEST.CDF key value [value ...]

Returns the cumulative distribution for all provided values. value must be a double. The cumulative distribution returned for all values is between 0..1.

Reply: double array or nil if key missing

TDIGEST.QUANTILE key quantile [quantile ...]

Returns the estimate values at all provided quantiles. quantile must be a double between 0..1.

Reply: double array or nil if key missing

TDIGEST.DEBUG key

Prints debug information about the t-digest.

Reply: bulk strings array

The reply is of the form:

1) TDIGEST (<compression>, <num_centroids>, <memory size>)
2)   CENTROID (<mean>, <weight>)
3)   CENTROID (<mean>, <weight>)
4)   CENTROID (<mean>, <weight>)
5)   ...

Centroids are printed in sorted order with respect to their mean.

Testing

The integration tests require a running Redis server so you must have redis-server on your PATH or pass its location in an environment variable called REDIS_SERVER. Tests are written in Python and use the pytest unit testing library.
