tAggregateRow Storm properties (deprecated)


These properties are used to configure tAggregateRow running in the Storm Job framework.

The Storm tAggregateRow component belongs to the Processing family.

This component is available in Talend Real Time Big Data Platform and Talend Data Fabric.

The Storm framework is deprecated from Talend 7.1 onwards. Use Talend Jobs for Apache Spark Streaming to accomplish your Streaming related tasks.

Basic settings

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the Repository Content window.


Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only.


Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs.

Group by

Define the aggregation sets, the values of which will be used for calculations.


Output Column: Select the column label in the list offered based on the schema structure you defined. You can add as many output columns as you wish to make more precise aggregations.

Ex: Select Country to calculate an average of values for each country of a list or select Country and Region if you want to compare one country's regions with another country' regions.


Input Column: Match the input column label with your output columns, in case the output label of the aggregation set needs to be different.


Select the type of operation along with the value to use for the calculation and the output field.


Output Column: Select the destination field in the list.


Function: Select the operator among: count, min, max, avg, sum, first, last, list, list(objects), count(distinct), standard deviation.


Input column: Select the input column from which the values are taken to be aggregated.


Ignore null values: Select the check boxes corresponding to the names of the columns for which you want the NULL value to be ignored.

Advanced settings

Delimiter(only for list operation)

Enter the delimiter you want to use to separate the different operations.

Use financial precision, this is the max precision for "sum" and "avg" operations, checked option heaps more memory and slower than unchecked.

Select this check box to use a financial precision. This is a max precision but consumes more memory and slows the processing.

Information noteWarning:

We advise you to use the BigDecimal type for the output in order to obtain precise results.

Check type overflow (slower)

Checks the type of data to ensure that the Job doesn't crash.

Check ULP (Unit in the Last Place), ensure that a value will be incremented or decremented correctly, only float and double types. (slower)

Select this check box to ensure the most precise results possible for the Float and Double types.


Usage rule

If you have subscribed to one of the Talend solutions with Big Data, you can also use this component as a Storm component. In a Talend Storm Job, this component is used as an intermediate step and other components used along with it must be Storm components, too. They generate native Storm code that can be executed directly in a Storm system.

The Storm version does not support the use of the global variables.

You need to use the Storm Configuration tab in the Run view to define the connection to a given Storm system for the whole Job.

This connection is effective on a per-Job basis.

For further information about a Talend Storm Job, see the sections describing how to create and configure a Talend Storm Job of the Talend Big Data Getting Started Guide .

Note that in this documentation, unless otherwise explicitly stated, a scenario presents only Standard Jobs, that is to say traditional Talend data integration Jobs.
