integral() function

integral() computes the area under the curve per unit of time of subsequent non-null records.

integral() requires _start and _stop columns that are part of the group key. The curve is defined using _time as the domain and record values as the range.

Function type signature
    <-tables: stream[A],
    ?column: string,
    ?interpolate: string,
    ?timeColumn: string,
    ?unit: duration,
) => stream[B] where A: Record, B: Record
For more information, see Function type signatures.



Unit of time to use to compute the integral.


Column to operate on. Default is _value.


Column that contains time values to use in the operation. Default is _time.


Type of interpolation to use. Default is "".

Available interplation types:

  • linear
  • empty string for no interpolation


Input data. Default is piped-forward data (<-).

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
