Build Status

Online calculation of Exponential Moving Average for Node.js.

Also suports Moving Variance, Moving Deviation and Forecast.

The following online algorythm is implemented:

diff := x - mean
incr := alpha * diff
mean := mean + incr
variance := (1 - alpha) * (variance + diff * incr)
forecast := mean + alpha * diff

Install

$ npm install moving-average

Use

var timeInterval = 5 * 60 * 1000; // 5 minutes
 
var MA = require('moving-average');
var ma = MA(timeInterval);
 
setInterval(function() {
  ma.push(Date.now(), Math.random() * 500);
  console.log('moving average now is', ma.movingAverage());
  console.log('moving variance now is', ma.variance());
  console.log('moving deviation now is', ma.deviation());
  console.log('forecast is', ma.forecast());
});
