# SQL Reference

In this part, we will introduce you IoTDB's Query Language. IoTDB offers you a SQL-like query language for interacting with IoTDB, the query language can be devided into 4 major parts:

  • Schema Statement: statements about schema management are all listed in this section.
  • Data Management Statement: statements about data management (such as: data insertion, data query, etc.) are all listed in this section.
  • Database Management Statement: statements about database management and authentication are all listed in this section.
  • Functions: functions that IoTDB offers are all listed in this section.

All of these statements are write in IoTDB's own syntax, for details about the syntax composition, please check the Reference section.

  • Group By Device Statement
GroupbyDeviceClause : GROUP BY DEVICE

Rules:  
1. Both uppercase and lowercase are ok.  
Correct example: select * from root.sg1 group by device  
Correct example: select * from root.sg1 GROUP BY DEVICE  

2. GroupbyDeviceClause can only be used at the end of a query statement.  
Correct example: select * from root.sg1 where time > 10 group by device  
Wrong example: select * from root.sg1 group by device where time > 10  

3. The paths of the SELECT clause can only be single level. In other words, the paths of the SELECT clause can only be measurements or STAR, without DOT.
Correct example: select s0,s1 from root.sg1.* group by device  
Correct example: select s0,s1 from root.sg1.d0, root.sg1.d1 group by device  
Correct example: select * from root.sg1.* group by device  
Correct example: select * from root group by device  
Correct example: select s0,s1,* from root.*.* group by device  
Wrong example: select d0.s1, d0.s2, d1.s0 from root.sg1 group by device  
Wrong example: select *.s0, *.s1 from root.* group by device  
Wrong example: select *.*.* from root group by device

4. The data types of the same measurement column should be the same across devices. 
Note that when it comes to aggregated paths, the data type of the measurement column will reflect 
the aggregation function rather than the original timeseries.

Correct example: select s0 from root.sg1.d0,root.sg1.d1 group by device   
root.sg1.d0.s0 and root.sg1.d1.s0 are both INT32.  

Correct example: select count(s0) from root.sg1.d0,root.sg1.d1 group by device   
count(root.sg1.d0.s0) and count(root.sg1.d1.s0) are both INT64.  

Wrong example: select s0 from root.sg1.d0, root.sg2.d3 group by device  
root.sg1.d0.s0 is INT32 while root.sg2.d3.s0 is FLOAT. 

5. The display principle of the result table is that only when the column (or row) has existing data will the column (or row) be shown, with nonexistent cells being null.   
For example, "select s0,s1,s2 from root.sg.d0, root.sg.d1, root.sg.d2 group by device". Suppose that the actual existing timeseries are as follows:  
- root.sg.d0.s0
- root.sg.d0.s1
- root.sg.d1.s0

Then the header of the result table will be: [Time, Device, s0, s1].  
And you could expect a table like:  

| Time | Device   | s0 | s1 |
| ---  | ---      | ---| ---|
|  1   |root.sg.d0| 20 | 2.5|
|  2   |root.sg.d0| 23 | 3.1|
| ...  | ...      | ...| ...|
|  1   |root.sg.d1| 12 |null|
|  2   |root.sg.d1| 19 |null|
| ...  | ...      | ...| ...|

Note that the cells of measurement 's0' and device 'root.sg.d1' are all null.    
Also note that the column of 's2' and the rows of 'root.sg.d2' are not existent.  

6. The duplicated devices in the prefix paths are neglected.  
For example, "select s0,s1 from root.sg.d0,root.sg.d0,root.sg.d1 group by device" is equal to "select s0,s1 from root.sg.d0,root.sg.d1 group by device".  
For example. "select s0,s1 from root.sg.*,root.sg.d0 group by device" is equal to "select s0,s1 from root.sg.* group by device".  

7. The duplicated measurements in the suffix paths are not neglected.  
For example, "select s0,s0,s1 from root.sg.* group by device" is not equal to "select s0,s1 from root.sg.* group by device".

8. More correct examples: 
   - select * from root.vehicle group by device
   - select s0,s0,s1 from root.vehicle.* group by device
   - select s0,s1 from root.vehicle.* limit 10 offset 1 group by device
   - select * from root.vehicle slimit 10 soffset 2 group by device
   - select * from root.vehicle where time > 10 group by device
   - select * from root.vehicle where root.vehicle.d0.s0>0 group by device
   - select count(*) from root.vehicle group by device
   - select sum(*) from root.vehicle GROUP BY (20ms,0,[2,50]) group by device
   - select * from root.vehicle where time = 3 Fill(int32[previous, 5ms]) group by device

# Functions

  • COUNT

The COUNT function returns the value number of timeseries(one or more) non-null values selected by the SELECT statement. The result is a signed 64-bit integer. If there are no matching rows, COUNT () returns 0.

SELECT COUNT(Path) (COMMA COUNT(Path))* FROM <FromClause> [WHERE <WhereClause>]?
Eg. SELECT COUNT(status), COUNT(temperature) FROM root.ln.wf01.wt01 WHERE root.ln.wf01.wt01.temperature < 24
Note: the statement needs to satisfy this constraint: <PrefixPath> + <Path> = <Timeseries>
1

3
  • FIRST

The FIRST function returns the first point value of the choosen timeseries(one or more).

SELECT FIRST (Path) (COMMA FIRST (Path))* FROM <FromClause> [WHERE <WhereClause>]?
Eg. SELECT FIRST (status), FIRST (temperature) FROM root.ln.wf01.wt01 WHERE root.ln.wf01.wt01.temperature < 24
Note: the statement needs to satisfy this constraint: <PrefixPath> + <Path> = <Timeseries>

  • MAX_TIME

The MAX_TIME function returns the maximum timestamp of the choosen timeseries(one or more). The result is a signed 64-bit integer, greater than 0.

SELECT MAX_TIME (Path) (COMMA MAX_TIME (Path))* FROM <FromClause> [WHERE <WhereClause>]?
Eg. SELECT MAX_TIME(status), MAX_TIME(temperature) FROM root.ln.wf01.wt01 WHERE root.ln.wf01.wt01.temperature < 24
Note: the statement needs to satisfy this constraint: <PrefixPath> + <Path> = <Timeseries>

  • MAX_VALUE

The MAX_VALUE function returns the maximum value(lexicographically ordered) of the choosen timeseries (one or more).

SELECT MAX_VALUE (Path) (COMMA MAX_VALUE (Path))* FROM <FromClause> [WHERE <WhereClause>]?
Eg. SELECT MAX_VALUE(status), MAX_VALUE(temperature) FROM root.ln.wf01.wt01 WHERE root.ln.wf01.wt01.temperature < 24
Note: the statement needs to satisfy this constraint: <PrefixPath> + <Path> = <Timeseries>

  • MIN_TIME

The MIN_TIME function returns the minimum timestamp of the choosen timeseries(one or more). The result is a signed 64-bit integer, greater than 0.

SELECT MIN_TIME (Path) (COMMA MIN_TIME (Path))*FROM <FromClause> [WHERE <WhereClause>]?
Eg. SELECT MIN_TIME(status), MIN_TIME(temperature) FROM root.ln.wf01.wt01 WHERE root.ln.wf01.wt01.temperature < 24
Note: the statement needs to satisfy this constraint: <PrefixPath> + <Path> = <Timeseries>

  • NOW

The NOW function returns the current timestamp. This function can be used in the data operation statement to represent time. The result is a signed 64-bit integer, greater than 0.

NOW()
Eg. INSERT INTO root.ln.wf01.wt01(timestamp,status) VALUES(NOW(), false) 
Eg. UPDATE root.ln.wf01.wt01 SET temperature = 23 WHERE time < NOW()
Eg. DELETE FROM root.ln.wf01.wt01.status, root.ln.wf01.wt01.temperature WHERE time < NOW()
Eg. SELECT * FROM root WHERE time < NOW()
Eg. SELECT COUNT(temperature) FROM root.ln.wf01.wt01 WHERE time < NOW()

# TTL

IoTDB supports storage-level TTL settings, which means it is able to delete old data automatically and periodically. The benefit of using TTL is that hopefully you can control the total disk space usage and prevent the machine from running out of disks. Moreover, the query performance may downgrade as the total number of files goes up and the memory usage also increase as there are more files. Timely removing such files helps to keep at a high query performance level and reduce memory usage. The TTL operations in IoTDB are supported by the following three statements:

  • Set TTL
SET TTL TO StorageGroupName TTLTime
Eg. SET TTL TO root.group1 3600000
This example means that for data in root.group1, only that of the latest 1 hour will remain, the
older one is removed or made invisible. 
Note: TTLTime should be millisecond timestamp. When TTL is set, insertions that fall
out of TTL will be rejected.

  • Unset TTL
UNSET TTL TO StorageGroupName
Eg. UNSET TTL TO root.group1
This example means that data of all time will be accepted in this group.

  • Show TTL
SHOW ALL TTL
SHOW TTL ON StorageGroupNames
Eg.1 SHOW ALL TTL
This example will show TTLs of all storage groups.
Eg.2 SHOW TTL ON root.group1,root.group2,root.group3
This example will show TTLs of the specified 3 groups.
Notice: storage groups without TTL will show a "null"

Notice: When you set TTL to some storage groups, data out of the TTL will be made invisible immediately, but because the data files may contain both out-dated and living data or the data files may be being used by queries, the physical removal of data is stale. If you increase or unset TTL just after setting it previously, some previously invisible data may be seen again, but the physically removed one is lost forever. In other words, different from delete statement, the atomicity of data deletion is not guaranteed for efficiency concerns. So we recommend that you do not change the TTL once it is set or at least do not reset it frequently, unless you are determined to suffer the unpredictability.
