The example uses a fictional SQL-MapReduce function, attribute_sales, which accepts two partitioned inputs and two arguments.

The inputs are:
  • weblog, which contains web store logs, the source of purchase information
  • adlog, which contains ad server logs

Both inputs are partitioned on the user browser cookie.

The function arguments are:
  • Clicks, which specifies the percentage of sales to attribute to clicked ads that lead to a purchase
  • Impressions, which specifies the percentage of sales to attribute to web page views that lead to a purchase

Consider the following function call:

SELECT adname, attr_revenue FROM attribute_sales (
  ON (SELECT cookie, cart_amt, adname, action
      FROM weblog
      WHERE page = 'thankyou') AS W PARTITION BY cookie
  ON adlog AS S PARTITION BY cookie

The following figure shows how SQL-MapReduce runs the preceding function call.
