Executive Summary

Many data sets occur as unaggregated data sets, where multiple data points are associated with each key. In the aggregate view of the data, the weight of a key is the sum of the weights of data points associated with the key. Examples are measurements of IP packet header streams, distributed data streams produced by events registered by sensor networks, and Web page or multimedia requests to context distribution servers. The authors aim to combine sampling and aggregation to provide accurate and efficient summaries of the aggregate view. However, data points are scattered in time or across multiple servers and hence aggregation is subject to resource constraints on the size of summaries that can be stored or transmitted.
