Data segmentation

Data in Data Locker is segmented into report types, days and hours. Meaning 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.

The structure of the folder relating to a specific day, for example, the folder path /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.

  • To understand the folder structure and how hourly segmentation works, see listing files and folders.

Data freshness: In Data Locker data is separated into hourly folders. The data is not updated in real-time but typically with a delay of six hours. To learn more, click here.
