I am in need of calculating the difference from the cumulative values for the previous day in Postgres based on session_id. Example as mentioned below:

CREATE TEMP TABLE foo AS
SELECT date::date, session_id, upload_usage, download_usage, total_usage_on_a_day
FROM ( VALUES
  ( '10/21/2014', '0007994b', 37578561   , 6800209   , 44378770 ),
  ( '10/22/2014', '0007994b', 218113296  , 85272007  , 303385303 ),
  ( '10/23/2014', '0007994b', 552228616  , 252390680 , 804619296 ) ,
  ( '10/24/2014', '0007994b', 799772020  , 391196041 , 1190968061 ),
  ( '10/25/2014', '0007994b', 1047233978 , 529908804 , 1577142782 ),
  ( '10/26/2014', '0007994b', 1294608258 , 668515778 , 1963124036 ),
  ( '10/27/2014', '0007994b', 1066656794 , 557318645 , 2573613674 ),
  ( '10/27/2014', '00079e4e', 12949219   , 7265243   , 20214462 ),
  ( '10/28/2014', '00079e4e', 203871297  , 114308478 , 318179775 ),
  ( '10/29/2014', '00079e4e', 445466682  , 251486943 , 696953625 ),
  ( '10/30/2014', '00079e4e', 183499477  , 109643736 , 893143213 )
) AS t( date, session_id, upload_usage, download_usage, total_usage_on_a_day );

Expected Results:

Date        session_id  upload_usage    download_usage  total_usage_on_a_day    Extected_difference
10/21/2014  0007994b    37578561        6800209         44378770                44378770

Basically I have to calculate the usage on daily basis from the total_usage_on_a_day for a particular session.

I am not good with window functions. I tried to find the day difference but how to find data level difference?

select date,sesion_id, SUM(upload_usage)AS UPLOAD,
SUM(download_usage)AS DOWNLOAD,
max(total_usage_on_a_day)AS TOTAL_AS_CUMM,
lag(daTE) over (PARTITION BY sesion_id ORDER BY daTE ASC) as previous_id,
lead(daTE) over (PARTITION BY sesion_id ORDER BY daTE ASC) as present_id
from jiodba.s_crc_zda_mon_conn_usage where GPART= '1100043958' AND zzaccess_ntwk_id = 'FTTH'
GROUP BY sesion_id,date
ORDER BY 1 limit 100;

    Is it possible to have more than one row having the same date and the same session_id? From your example's date I assumed it is not but then the GROUP BY session_id and date makes sense? – JGA Dec 6 '14 at 21:42

You can use LAG() function in a query with GROUP BY just like any other query. The only difference is that the columns allowed in the window (OVER) and in the LAG are the ones allowed in SELECT after a GROUP BY:

select 
    date,
    session_id, 
    sum(upload_usage) as upload,
    sum(download_usage) as download,
    sum(total_usage_on_a_day) as total_as_cumm,
    sum(total_usage_on_a_day) 
    - coalesce(lag(sum(total_usage_on_a_day)) over (partition by session_id order by date), 0)
        as expected_difference
 from jiodba.s_crc_zda_mon_conn_usage 
 where gpart = '1100043958' 
   and zzaccess_ntwk_id = 'FTTH' 
 group by session_id, date
 order by session_id, date 
 limit 100 ;
  • I'm not sure why you used max(usage) while you name the column total_usage. I changed it to use sum() instead. If you need to use max(usage) there, pick a more appropriate name for that column.
  • Thanks a lot.. i also finally arrived same solution... thanks for confirming that – William R Dec 8 '14 at 6:37

Here, a solution using subqueries http://sqlfiddle.com/#!10/52460/13

SELECT *,
    total_usage_on_a_day - COALESCE((
    SELECT total_usage_on_a_day
    FROM foo 
    WHERE session_id = T.session_id and Date < T.Date
    ORDER BY Date DESC
    limit 1
    ),0) AS Extected_difference
FROM foo T
