Bitmap functions

Bitmap functions work for two bitmaps Object value calculation, it is to return new bitmap or cardinality while using formula calculation, such as and, or, xor, and not, etc.

There are 2 kinds of construction methods for Bitmap Object. One is to be constructed by aggregation function groupBitmap with -State, the other is to be constructed by Array Object. It is also to convert Bitmap Object to Array Object.

RoaringBitmap is wrapped into a data structure while actual storage of Bitmap objects. When the cardinality is less than or equal to 32, it uses Set objet. When the cardinality is greater than 32, it uses RoaringBitmap object. That is why storage of low cardinality set is faster.

For more information on RoaringBitmap, see: CRoaring.

bitmapBuild

Build a bitmap from unsigned integer array.

bitmapBuild(array)

Parameters

  • array – unsigned integer array.

Example

SELECT bitmapBuild([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]) AS res, toTypeName(res)
┌─res─┬─toTypeName(bitmapBuild([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]))─────┐
│     │ AggregateFunction(groupBitmap, UInt8)    │
└─────┴──────────────────────────────────────────────┘

bitmapToArray

Convert bitmap to integer array.

bitmapToArray(bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapToArray(bitmapBuild([1, 2, 3, 4, 5])) AS res
┌─res─────────┐
│ [1,2,3,4,5] │
└─────────────┘

bitmapContains

Checks whether the bitmap contains an element.

bitmapContains(haystack, needle)

Parameters

  • haystackBitmap object, where the functions searches.
  • needle – Value that the function searches. Type: UInt32.

Returned value

  • 0 — If haystack doesn't contain needle.
  • 1 — If haystack contains needle.

Type: UInt8.

Example

SELECT bitmapContains(bitmapBuild([1,5,7,9]), toUInt32(9)) AS res
┌─res─┐
│  1  │
└─────┘

bitmapHasAny

Checks whether two bitmaps have intersection by some elements.

bitmapHasAny(bitmap1, bitmap2)

If you are sure that bitmap2 contains strictly one element, consider using the bitmapContains function. It works more efficiently.

Parameters

  • bitmap* – bitmap object.

Return values

  • 1, if bitmap1 and bitmap2 have one similar element at least.
  • 0, otherwise.

Example

SELECT bitmapHasAny(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5])) AS res
┌─res─┐
│  1  │
└─────┘

bitmapHasAll

Analogous to hasAll(array, array) returns 1 if the first bitmap contains all the elements of the second one, 0 otherwise. If the second argument is an empty bitmap then returns 1.

bitmapHasAll(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapHasAll(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5])) AS res
┌─res─┐
│  0  │
└─────┘

bitmapAnd

Two bitmap and calculation, the result is a new bitmap.

bitmapAnd(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapToArray(bitmapAnd(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5]))) AS res
┌─res─┐
│ [3] │
└─────┘

bitmapOr

Two bitmap or calculation, the result is a new bitmap.

bitmapOr(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapToArray(bitmapOr(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5]))) AS res
┌─res─────────┐
│ [1,2,3,4,5] │
└─────────────┘

bitmapXor

Two bitmap xor calculation, the result is a new bitmap.

bitmapXor(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapToArray(bitmapXor(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5]))) AS res
┌─res───────┐
│ [1,2,4,5] │
└───────────┘

bitmapAndnot

Two bitmap andnot calculation, the result is a new bitmap.

bitmapAndnot(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapToArray(bitmapAndnot(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5]))) AS res
┌─res───┐
│ [1,2] │
└───────┘

bitmapCardinality

Retrun bitmap cardinality of type UInt64.

bitmapCardinality(bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapCardinality(bitmapBuild([1, 2, 3, 4, 5])) AS res
┌─res─┐
│   5 │
└─────┘

bitmapAndCardinality

Two bitmap and calculation, return cardinality of type UInt64.

bitmapAndCardinality(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapAndCardinality(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5])) AS res;
┌─res─┐
│   1 │
└─────┘

bitmapOrCardinality

Two bitmap or calculation, return cardinality of type UInt64.

bitmapOrCardinality(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapOrCardinality(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5])) AS res;
┌─res─┐
│   5 │
└─────┘

bitmapXorCardinality

Two bitmap xor calculation, return cardinality of type UInt64.

bitmapXorCardinality(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapXorCardinality(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5])) AS res;
┌─res─┐
│   4 │
└─────┘

bitmapAndnotCardinality

Two bitmap andnot calculation, return cardinality of type UInt64.

bitmapAndnotCardinality(bitmap,bitmap)

Parameters

  • bitmap – bitmap object.

Example

SELECT bitmapAndnotCardinality(bitmapBuild([1,2,3]),bitmapBuild([3,4,5])) AS res;
┌─res─┐
│   2 │
└─────┘
