clock

Plugin

ArgDescriptionType
startStart at this time.Any
periodWait this many seconds between events.int64
msWait this many ms between events.int64

Description

Generate a timestamp periodically. This is mostly useful for event queries.

This plugin generates events periodically. The periodicity can be controlled either via the period or the ms parameter. Each row will be a go time.Time object. You can access its unix epoch time with the Sec column.

Example

The following will generate an event every 10 seconds.

SELECT Second FROM clock(period=10)

The start parameter can be used to schedule the plugin to start at a particular time. This can be an integer (which will be interpreted as seconds since the epoch), a string or a time value.
