While working with AF Analytics, I experienced some difficulties and thought to list out them if others also had faced the same:
- We can't stop the backfill analysis in between and also it's not an atomic operation.
If the machine, on which backfilling is done, is abruptly shutdown or restarted then the status of how many analysis are backfilled, can't be stated and also some are corrupted.
- Custom rollups.
I haven't explored new AF SDK fully. My doubt is that can I create custom roll-ups like custom data reference and use them as "code once, use multiple times"?
- Suppose I have created an expression analysis and backfilled it for particular time period. Then I have addition/deletion of few terms in that expression analysis and I want to backfill the analysis again for that particular time period. Currently up to my knowledge I cannot do that.
Happy to hear if any above point is already solved and I forgot to explore.
