Dear R users,

I would like to announce the release of the "atsd" R package on CRAN, 
which offers functions for retrieving time-series and related meta-data 
such as entities, metrics, and tags from Axibase Time Series Database (ATSD).


ATSD runs on top of HBase to collect, analyze and visualize time series data at scale. 
ATSD capabilities include optimized storage schema, built-in rule engine, forecasting 
algorithms include Holt-Winters, ARIMA and graphics designed for high-frequency data. 
Primary use case: IT infrastructure resource monitoring.

The main focus of "atsd" R package is to simplify data retrieval. This package eliminates 
the need to manually retrieve historical data and forecasts, before any advanced analysis 
is executed. The "atsd" R package fetches data and tags from ATSD, and converts them into 
a data frame object which can be readily consumed by other R packages.

Key supported functions for retrieving data:

· query() -- get historical data and forecasts from ATSD. 
             This function supports aggregation: COUNT, MIN, MAX, AVG, WAvg, WTAvg, SUM, 
             PERCENTILES (50%, 75%, 90%, 95%, 99%, 99.5%, 99.9%), STANDARD_DEVIATION. 
             The function also supports interpolation: NONE, STEP, LINEAR.

· get_metrics() -- get information about the metrics collected by ATSD.

· get_entities() -- get information about the entities collected by ATSD.

· to_zoo() -- converts a time-series data frame to 'zoo' object for manipulating irregular 
              time-series with built-in functions in zoo package.
