troll-avg Build Status

Time-based rolling average calculations for node.js

Installation

Via npm:

$npm install --save troll-avg

Quick Start

var Troll=require('troll-avg');
 
// Setup 5 counting slots collecting updates for 1 second each 
// for three different keys. This will give the average values
// over the last 5 seconds.
var ravg=new Troll(['foo','bar','bletch'], 1, 5);
 
// Increment a random key by 1 every 250 mS
setInterval(function() {
    var r=Math.random();
    if (r<0.1) {            // 10% goes to boo
        ravg.update('foo');
    } else if (r<0.4) {     // 30% goes to bar
        ravg.update('bar');
    } else {                // 60% goes to bletch
        ravg.update('bletch');
    }
},250);
 
// Show all averages every second
setInterval(function() {
    console.log(ravg.averages());
}, 1000);

Methods

Constructor (allowedKeys, period, binCount)

The constructor expects three arguments.

  1. An array of the keys that are being averaged.
  2. How many seconds the data for each key is collected into one bins.
  3. How many bins that the average is calculated over.

.update(key, cnt)

Add then cnt value into the current bin. If cnt is not specified it defaults to 1.

.average(key)

Return the rolling average value for the specified key.

.averages()

Return the rolling average values for all keys as an object.

Notes

Since the collection of the values for the current time period is made into a separate set of bins calling .average() or .averages() before the first time period have elapsed the returned average(s) will be zero(s).

Testing

Unit tests are done with mocha/chai. They can be run with npm test
