Rolling sum and average – Window Functions MySQL

Rolling sum and average query results are possible by combining the aggregate functions SUM() or AVG() with the OVER() clause, making for powerful analytic queries. I recently learned how to compute a rolling average or sum of values by using the Windowing option of the OVER() clause, applying the concepts to a data set I am familiar with. I wanted to share my learning with any readers who might be interested…

After the deployment the queries were extremely slow and they struggled lot , then they approached us for the solution. After the analysis, their OLAP database as expected it was IO bound with 100% disk IOPS utilised during the report generation. So, the queries were starving for the Disk IO slows the process .

Problem statement :

  • Reports are majorly focused on two larger log tables ( emp_Report_model , emp_details ) .
  • The report generator (procedure) is using the count(*) statement to stimulate the aggregated data on each call. It is required for their business purpose .
  • Count(*) is terribly slow in MySQL ( Using MySQL 5.7 ) as it …

A Nice Introduction to MySQL Window Functions III

Windowing Functions can get quite complex very quickly when you start taking advantage of the frame clause. Ranges and rows can get confusing.  So for review lets look at how the specification looks:

Window_spec:
   [window name] [partition clause] [order clause] [frame clause]

That looks simple. And them come terms like UNBOUNDED PRECEDING that could put a knot in your gut.  The manual is not exactly written to help novices in this area get up to speed.  But don't panic.  If you work through the examples that follow (and please do the preceding part of this series before trying these examples) you will have a better appreciation of what is going on with window function.

The Frame Clause
So the frame clause is optional in the window function.  A frame is considered a subset of the current partition and defines that subset.  Frames are determined with …

A Kind Introduction MySQL Windowing Functions Part I


Windowing functions are a critical tool for grouping rows of data that are related to other rows. But they go far beyond the regular aggregate functions found in MySQL 5.7 and earlier. In MySQL 8 you do not have to collapse all the information down into a single output row. Each row can retain its individual identity but the server can analyze the data as a unit.
Statistics and Damned Lies Finding the total Population of the District Texas from the world.city table is simple. 

SQL> select District, sum(Population)  
from city where district = 'Texas';
+----------+-----------------+
| District | sum(Population) |
+----------+-----------------+
| Texas    |         9208281 |
+----------+-----------------+
