demo.ecommerce.data table, we want to calculate the biased variance of the values in the bytesTransferred column during each 5-minute period. Before aggregating the data, the table must be grouped in 5-minute intervals.

Click Aggregate function and you will see the following result:
How does it work in LINQ?
Group your data using the following structure:
as... to add the new column that will show the aggregated values. This is the syntax for the Variance (biased) operation:
See Build a query using LINQ to learn more about grouping and aggregating your data using the LINQ language.
You can copy the following LINQ script and try the above example on the
from demo.ecommerce.data group every 5m every 5m select var(bytesTransferred) as bv_bytes
