Add a Data Rollup Summarization Profile

Data summarization refers to the process of creating a concise version of raw data and field data. Data can be summarized as a function of time or when a change occurs. You can add a rollup summarization profile to summarize processed data that is stored in fields in the TSDB.

You can add a data rollup summarization profile to apply to a device group from the:

  • Paragon Automation GUI

  • MGD CLI

To add a data rollup summarization profile:

  1. Click Configuration > Summarization Profiles > Data Roll Up link in the left navigation bar.

    The Data Roll Up Summarization Profiles page appears.

  2. Click the Add (+) icon.

    The Add Data Rollup Summarization Profile page appears.

  3. Enter the name of the profile in the Name text box.
  4. Click Add Rule to add a rule for the device profile.

    The Name and Apply on Existing Data lists are displayed.

    Follow these steps to select a rule, to apply the rule to the profile, and to apply the rule to existing data.

    1. Select a rule to apply to the profile from the Name list.
    2. To apply the rule that you selected to existing data, select True from the Apply on Existing Data list.

      The default value is False.

    3. Click Add Field to associate a default field to an aggregate function.

      To associate a default field to an aggregate function:

      1. Select a default field from the Name list to which you want to apply an aggregate function.

      2. Select one or more aggregate functions from the Aggregate Function list that you want to apply to a default field.

    4. (Optional) To add another rule to the profile, click Add Rule, and repeat step 4.a through step 4.c.
  5. Click Add Data Rollup Order to define how multiple rollup orders are configured, retained, and executed.

    The Name and Retention Policy lists, and the Rollup Interval text box are displayed.

    To define a data rollup order:

    1. Enter a name to identify the data rollup order in the Name text box.

      The maximum length is 64 characters.

      Regex pattern: “[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_-]*

    2. Enter a value in the Rollup Interval text box to define an interval in which the data is summarized.

      Regex pattern: “[1-9][0-9]*[mhdw]”, where m is minutes, h is hours, d is days, and w is weeks.

      Minimum value is 30m. Maximum value is 52w.

    3. Select the retention policy for the rollup order from the Retention Policy list.

      A retention policy defines how long you want to retain the new data.

      Selecting a retention policy is optional. If you do not select a retention policy, the device group retention policy is considered by default.

    4. (Optional) To define another data rollup order, click Add Data Rollup Order, and repeat step 5.a through step 5.c.
  6. Click Save to only save the configuration.

    Click Save and Deploy to save and deploy the configuration immediately.

  7. You can now apply the data rollup summarization profile that you add to a specific device group. For more information, see Apply Data Summarization Profiles.

Figure 1 is an example configuration of how you can configure a data rollup summarization profile from the CLI.
