The Window Transformation allows data to buffer for an allocated amount of records or time before it is pushed down the stream.
This Agent is particularly useful when readings arrive very frequently (e.g. every 1 or 2 seconds), in either batch processing or in situations when the cost or resources involved in performing a single operation are high.
For example, a Window Transformation would be useful in a scenario where a user needs to email records that are arriving every second. Rather than sending out 20 different emails in 20 seconds, the user can apply the Window Transformation configured to buffer for 20 seconds. As a result, the user can send out 1 email every 20 seconds with all the accumulated records.
