Proposed

Warning

Proposed functions for next mayor release.

  • They are not officially in the current release.

  • They will likely officially be part of the next mayor release:

    • The functions make use of ANY-INTEGER and ANY-NUMERICAL

    • Name might not change. (But still can)

    • Signature might not change. (But still can)

    • Functionality might not change. (But still can)

    • pgTap tests have being done. But might need more.

    • Documentation might need refinement.

Calculate nodes that are within a distance.

  • Extracts all the nodes that have costs less than or equal to the value distance.

  • The edges extracted will conform to the corresponding spanning tree. Edge

  • Edge \((u, v)\) will not be included when:

    • The distance from the root to \(u\) > limit distance.

    • The distance from the root to \(v\) > limit distance.

    • No new nodes are created on the graph, so when is within the limit and is not within the limit, the edge is not included.

Parameters

Parameter

Type

Description

Edges SQL

TEXT

Edges SQL as described below.

Root vid

BIGINT

Identifier of the root vertex of the tree.

Root vids

ARRAY[ANY-INTEGER]

Array of identifiers of the root vertices.

  • \(0\) values are ignored

  • For optimization purposes, any duplicated value is ignored.

distance

FLOAT

Upper limit for the inclusion of a node in the result.

Where:

ANY-INTEGER:

SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT

ANY-NUMERIC:

SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT, REAL, FLOAT

Inner Queries

Edges SQL

Column

Type

Default

Description

id

ANY-INTEGER

Identifier of the edge.

source

ANY-INTEGER

Identifier of the first end point vertex of the edge.

target

ANY-INTEGER

Identifier of the second end point vertex of the edge.

cost

ANY-NUMERICAL

Weight of the edge (source, target)

reverse_cost

ANY-NUMERICAL

-1

Weight of the edge (target, source)

  • When negative: edge (target, source) does not exist, therefore it’s not part of the graph.

Where:

ANY-INTEGER:

SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT

ANY-NUMERICAL:

SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT, REAL, FLOAT
