DenStream Data Stream Clusterer

Class implements the DenStream cluster algorithm for data streams.

Usage
DSC_DenStream(epsilon, mu = 1, beta = 0.2, lambda = 0.001,
    initPoints = 100, offline = 2, processingSpeed=1, recluster = TRUE, k=NULL)
Arguments
epsilon

defines the epsilon neighbourhood which is the maximal radius of micro-clusters (r<=epsilon). Range: 0 to 1.

mu

minpoints as the weight w a core-micro-clusters needs to be created (w>=mu). Range: 0 to max(int).

beta

multiplier for mu to detect outlier micro-clusters given their weight w (w<beta x mu). Range: 0 to 1

lambda

decay constant.

initPoints

number of points to use for initialization via DBSCAN.

offline

offline multiplier for epsilon. Range: between 2 and 20). Used for reachability reclustering

processingSpeed

Number of incoming points per time unit (important for decay). Range: between 1 and 1000.

recluster

logical; should the offline DBSCAN-based (i.e., reachability at a distance of epsilon) be performed?

k

integer; tries to automatically chooses offline to find k macro-clusters.

Details

Interface to the DenStream implementation in MOA.

DenStream applies reachbility (from DBSCAN) between micro-clusters for reclustering using epsilon x offline (defaults to 2) as the reachability threshold.

If k is specified it automatically chooses the reachability threshold to find k clusters. This is achieved using single-link hierarchical clustering.

Value

An object of class DSC_DenStream (subclass of DSC, DSC_MOA, DSC_Micro) or, for recluster=TRUE, an object of class DSC_TwoStage.
