Options

  • period: The period in milliseconds
  • timefromstart: If set to true, start from 0 (from Jan 1th 1970). If set to false, uses the current time. (Default: false)

Commands

  • setperiod
    • Sets a new period for the timer.
    • period parameter: The new period to be set. Must be a number type (long, double...).

Example

PQL

Example
input = ACCESS({source='Source',
wrapper='GenericPush',
transport='Timer',
protocol='None',
dataHandler='Tuple',
options=[['period', '1000'], ['timefromstart', 'true'],
schema=[['time', 'Timestamp']]
})

or shorter:

input = TIMER({PERIOD = 1000, TIMEFROMSTART = true, SOURCE = 'Source'}) 

CQL

Example
CREATE STREAM source (time Timestamp)
    WRAPPER 'GenericPush'
    PROTOCOL 'None'
    TRANSPORT 'Timer'
    DATAHANDLER 'Tuple'
    OPTIONS ( 'period' '1000')
