Simple Beast Mode Failing on Federated Dataset
I've got a federated dataset pulling a redshift table and I want to perform some simple calculations like SUM(column1) / COUNT(column2).
However, this calculation is resolving to 0 consistently despite the correct value being about 0.2.
If I write a beastmode for SUM(column1) I get the correct value. And if I do the same for Count(column2) I also get the correct value - just not when I divide them.
My hypothesis was that this was some kind of timeout issue with our database connection settings, like this one: https://dojo.domo.com/discussion/53003/beast-mode-processing-limitations
But 1) I also get some pretty funny values if I write beastmodes like 5/4 (this resolves to 1.00000!) or 5/6 (this resolves to 0.0000).
AND 2) I've limited the dataset to just 1000 rows
So I'm wondering whether it's not something else (a weird rounding issue?)
Has anyone experienced anything similar or could point me in the direction of what I could do to resolve?
