Magnifying glass iconSearch Time

Filter and search for specific timestamps with “WHERE”

Knife iconSlice Time

Create time buckets and aggregate by intervals with “SAMPLE BY”

Indication arrow iconNavigate Time

Search time series from most recent values to oldest with “LATEST ON”

Two overlapping squaresMerge Time

Join two tables based on timestamp where timestamps do not exactly match with “ASOF JOIN”

Why time series?
