# Enum FoldersResource.TimeSeriesResource.ListRequest.SecondaryAggregationPerSeriesAlignerEnum

An Aligner describes how to bring the data points in a single time series into temporal alignment. Except for ALIGN_NONE, all alignments cause all the data points in an alignment_period to be mathematically grouped together, resulting in a single data point for each alignment_period with end timestamp at the end of the period.Not all alignment operations may be applied to all time series. The valid choices depend on the metric_kind and value_type of the original time series. Alignment can change the metric_kind or the value_type of the time series.Time series data must be aligned in order to perform cross-time series reduction. If cross_series_reducer is specified, then per_series_aligner must be specified and not equal to ALIGN_NONE and alignment_period must be specified; otherwise, an error is returned.

`public enum FoldersResource.TimeSeriesResource.ListRequest.SecondaryAggregationPerSeriesAlignerEnum`

### Fields

Name | Description |
---|---|

ALIGNCOUNT | Align the time series by returning the number of values in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with numeric or Boolean values. The value_type of the aligned result is INT64. |

ALIGNCOUNTFALSE | Align the time series by returning the number of False values in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE metrics with Boolean values. The value_type of the output is INT64. |

ALIGNCOUNTTRUE | Align the time series by returning the number of True values in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE metrics with Boolean values. The value_type of the output is INT64. |

ALIGNDELTA | Align and convert to DELTA. The output is delta = y1 - y0.This alignment is valid for CUMULATIVE and DELTA metrics. If the selected alignment period results in periods with no data, then the aligned value for such a period is created by interpolation. The value_type of the aligned result is the same as the value_type of the input. |

ALIGNFRACTIONTRUE | Align the time series by returning the ratio of the number of True values to the total number of values in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE metrics with Boolean values. The output value is in the range 0.0, 1.0 and has value_type DOUBLE. |

ALIGNINTERPOLATE | Align by interpolating between adjacent points around the alignment period boundary. This aligner is valid for GAUGE metrics with numeric values. The value_type of the aligned result is the same as the value_type of the input. |

ALIGNMAX | Align the time series by returning the maximum value in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with numeric values. The value_type of the aligned result is the same as the value_type of the input. |

ALIGNMEAN | Align the time series by returning the mean value in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with numeric values. The value_type of the aligned result is DOUBLE. |

ALIGNMIN | Align the time series by returning the minimum value in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with numeric values. The value_type of the aligned result is the same as the value_type of the input. |

ALIGNNEXTOLDER | Align by moving the most recent data point before the end of the alignment period to the boundary at the end of the alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE metrics. The value_type of the aligned result is the same as the value_type of the input. |

ALIGNNONE | No alignment. Raw data is returned. Not valid if cross-series reduction is requested. The value_type of the result is the same as the value_type of the input. |

ALIGNPERCENTCHANGE | Align and convert to a percentage change. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with numeric values. This alignment returns ((current - previous)/previous) * 100, where the value of previous is determined based on the alignment_period.If the values of current and previous are both 0, then the returned value is 0. If only previous is 0, the returned value is infinity.A 10-minute moving mean is computed at each point of the alignment period prior to the above calculation to smooth the metric and prevent false positives from very short-lived spikes. The moving mean is only applicable for data whose values are >= 0. Any values < 0 are treated as a missing datapoint, and are ignored. While DELTA metrics are accepted by this alignment, special care should be taken that the values for the metric will always be positive. The output is a GAUGE metric with value_type DOUBLE. |

ALIGNPERCENTILE05 | Align the time series by using percentile aggregation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percentile). The resulting data point in each alignment period is the 5th percentile of all data points in the period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with distribution values. The output is a GAUGE metric with value_type DOUBLE. |

ALIGNPERCENTILE50 | Align the time series by using percentile aggregation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percentile). The resulting data point in each alignment period is the 50th percentile of all data points in the period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with distribution values. The output is a GAUGE metric with value_type DOUBLE. |

ALIGNPERCENTILE95 | Align the time series by using percentile aggregation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percentile). The resulting data point in each alignment period is the 95th percentile of all data points in the period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with distribution values. The output is a GAUGE metric with value_type DOUBLE. |

ALIGNPERCENTILE99 | Align the time series by using percentile aggregation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percentile). The resulting data point in each alignment period is the 99th percentile of all data points in the period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with distribution values. The output is a GAUGE metric with value_type DOUBLE. |

ALIGNRATE | Align and convert to a rate. The result is computed as rate = (y1 - y0)/(t1 - t0), or "delta over time". Think of this aligner as providing the slope of the line that passes through the value at the start and at the end of the alignment_period.This aligner is valid for CUMULATIVE and DELTA metrics with numeric values. If the selected alignment period results in periods with no data, then the aligned value for such a period is created by interpolation. The output is a GAUGE metric with value_type DOUBLE.If, by "rate", you mean "percentage change", see the ALIGN_PERCENT_CHANGE aligner instead. |

ALIGNSTDDEV | Align the time series by returning the standard deviation of the values in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with numeric values. The value_type of the output is DOUBLE. |

ALIGNSUM | Align the time series by returning the sum of the values in each alignment period. This aligner is valid for GAUGE and DELTA metrics with numeric and distribution values. The value_type of the aligned result is the same as the value_type of the input. |
