Data segmentation

Data in Data Locker is segmented into folders as follows:

  • Report types
  • Days
  • Hours

This means that for each report type, on a given day, the data is separated into separate folders by arrival hour and not by the data event time.  For example,  ../t=installs/dt=2019-01-17/ contains 25 folders. There are 24 folders for each hour of the day, from 0 to 23 and an additional folder for data that arrives late.

Data freshness: Data is separated into arrival hour folders. That is the hour that the event was processed in AppsFlyer. The Data Locker folder is written within six hours of processing. To learn more, click here.
