Data Stream Management and Complex Event Processing in Esper INF5100, Autumn 2010 Jarle Søberg

Outline • Overview of Esper • DSMS and CEP concepts in Esper – Examples taken from the documentation • A lot of possibilities • We focus at the ones that extend traditional SQL

• Esper’s query processing model • Code example taken from the documentation – Neither the concept descriptions nor the code example are complete – Consult with the documentation for more details • © Jarle Søberg, 2010

Overview of Esper • A Java/.NET library for complex event processing – Stream based – Our examples are from the Java version

• Processes complex queries written in a language called EPL (event processing language) – Uses DBMS, DSMS and CEP concepts

• The code is available at • Tutorial(s), code examples

• Open source • Can be used in several data stream and CEP applications © Jarle Søberg, 2010

Architecture Overview • The main elements in the Esper architecture resemble any DSMS/CEP system – Input data is processed by one or more queries Esper engine

Event objects



Data Model (2) • A data stream of event objects

The parenthesis denote the section/chapter in the documentation where this is described.

– Attributes that are defined with types and values • String, boolean, integer, long, float, byte, ... • One needs to write a method that converts to event objects from the data stream or file

– Represented as Java objects

• Stream types – Input stream: istream • All the new events arriving, and entering a data window or aggregation • The default stream type

– Remove stream: rstream • All the old events leaving a data window or aggregation

– Both: irstream

Event Declaration (2) •

The event objects can be declared by –

Schema •


create schema schema_name [as] (property_name property_type [,property_name property_type [,...]) [inherits inherited_event_type[, inherited_event_type] [,...]] Events can be represented as org.w3c.dom.Node instances

Code package org.myapp.event; public class OrderEvent { private String itemName; private double price; public OrderEvent(String itemName, double price) { this.itemName = itemName; this.price = price; } public String getItemName() { return itemName; } public double getPrice() { return price; } }

Many other types •

E.g. java.util.Map

<xs:schema xmlns:xs=" 2001/XMLSchema"> <xs:element name="Sensor"> <xs:complexType> <xs:sequence> <xs:element name="ID" type="xs:string"/> <xs:element ref="Observation" /> ...

Creating Events • Create a new event object and send the object to the event processor runtime: OrderEvent event = new OrderEvent("shirt", 74.50); epService.getEPRuntime(). sendEvent(event);

Windows (9) • •

In Esper a window is called a view Provides many types of windows/views – some examples:




Length window


Sliding window by number of elements

Length batch window


Tumbling window up to size events

Time window

win:time(time period)

Sliding time window

Externally-timed window

win:ext_timed(timestamp expression, time period)

Sliding time window, based on the millisecond tim
