Usage Details

timeBucket(table, bucketDef)

Input
table: Input table for the time bucket. The table must have an lhub_ts column.
bucketDef: String that defines a time bucket. The string has the following format: (integer)('s' or 'm' or 'h' or 'd') where 's' stands for seconds, 'm' stands for minutes, 'h' stands for hours, and 'd' stands for days. Some examples of valid strings are the following: "3s" = 3 seconds "5m" = 5 minutes. When the granularity is in days, the day boundaries are in the UTC timezone.

Output
The input table with lhub_start_ts and lhub_end_ts columns added.
