Title

Window-based Query Processing

Abstract

Data Streams are infinite in nature. As a result, a query that executes over data streams specifies a ‘‘window’’ of focus or the part of the data stream that is of interest to the query. When new data items arrive into the data stream, the window may either expand or slide to allow the query to process these new data items. Hence, queries over data streams are continuous in nature, i.e., the query is continuously re-evaluated each time the query window slides.Window-based query processing on data streams refers to the various ways and techniques for processing and evaluating continuous queries over windows of data stream items.
