Hi all,
Wonder if I am missing something obvious, but I can't seem to get it.
I need to come up with a query that returns start_time, end_time, count for every 5 min interval.
Here is the sample data:

create table A (process_date datetime);
insert into A (process_date)
values
('2014-04-24 00:00:00.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:01:05.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:01:07.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:02:09.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:02:10.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:03:11.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:03:13.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:04:14.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:04:14.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:05:14.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:05:14.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:06:15.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:06:15.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:07:16.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:08:16.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:08:16.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:09:16.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:09:16.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:09:16.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:10:16.000'),
('2014-04-24 00:10:16.000');
select * from A;



So, in this case I'd like to see:

start_date, end_date, count(*)
'2014-04-24 00:00:00.000', '2014-04-24 00:05:14.000', 11
'2014-04-24 00:05:14.000', '2014-04-24 00:10:16.000', 10



Thanks,

Why are the intervals in the desired output > 5 minutes?

I agree your desired output doesn't match your description because you have intervals outside of the 5 minutes.

Something like this get you started?


select MIN(process_date) as StartDate, MAX(process_date) as EndDate, COUNT(*)
from A
group by DATEPART(minute, process_date) / 5
