TSTool / Best Practices


This documentation describes best practices when using TSTool.

Time Series Identifiers

The main function of TSTool is to process time series and other data:

  1. Read data.
  2. Process/manipulate data.
  3. Write data.

Each time series being processed is assigned a unique identifier (time series ID or TSID) and commands that process time series typically have a TSList and/or TSID parameter (or variations if multiple time series are processed). The TSID is the means by which a command communicates with the TSTool processor to retrieve a time series to manipulate.

Because the TSID can be long and cumbersome, TSTool also allows an alias to be assigned to time series.
