anomaly differencing distinct count 30 days

anomaly differencing distinct count 30 days checks

Description
Column-level check that ensures that the distinct count in a monitored column is within a two-tailed percentile from measurements made during the last 30 days.


profile anomaly differencing distinct count 30 days

Check description
Verifies that the distinct count in a monitored column is within a two-tailed percentile from measurements made during the last 30 days.

Enable check (Shell)
To enable this check provide connection name and check name in check enable command

dqo> check enable -c=connection_name -ch=profile_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days
Run check (Shell)
To run this check provide check name in check run command
dqo> check run -ch=profile_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days
It is also possible to run this check on a specific connection. In order to do this, add the connection name to the below
dqo> check run -c=connection_name -ch=profile_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days
It is additionally feasible to run this check on a specific table. In order to do this, add the table name to the below
dqo> check run -c=connection_name -t=schema_name.table_name -ch=profile_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days
It is furthermore viable to combine run this check on a specific column. In order to do this, add the column name to the below
dqo> check run -c=connection_name -t=schema_name.table_name -col=column_name -ch=profile_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days

monthly anomaly differencing distinct count 30 days

Check description
Verifies that the distinct count in a monitored column is within a two-tailed percentile from measurements made during the last 30 days.

Check name Check type Time scale Quality dimension Sensor definition Quality rule
monthly_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days monitoring monthly Consistency distinct_count anomaly_differencing_percentile_moving_average_30_days

Enable check (Shell)
To enable this check provide connection name and check name in check enable command

dqo> check enable -c=connection_name -ch=monthly_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days
Run check (Shell)
To run this check provide check name in check run command
dqo> check run -ch=monthly_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days
It is also possible to run this check on a specific connection. In order to do this, add the connection name to the below
dqo> check run -c=connection_name -ch=monthly_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days
It is additionally feasible to run this check on a specific table. In order to do this, add the table name to the below
dqo> check run -c=connection_name -t=schema_name.table_name -ch=monthly_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days
It is furthermore viable to combine run this check on a specific column. In order to do this, add the column name to the below
dqo> check run -c=connection_name -t=schema_name.table_name -col=column_name -ch=monthly_anomaly_differencing_distinct_count_30_days

Configuration with data grouping

Sample configuration with data grouping enabled (YAML)
The sample below shows how to configure the data grouping and how it affects the generated SQL query.
