The Transform Log to Session operator of the Web Mining Extension transforms an example set returned by the Read Server Log operator to a set of transactions suitable for performing association analysis.
The mandatory parameters of the operator are named session attribute and resource attribute. The former determines the attribute used for identifying sessions while the latter determines the attribute used for identifying resources.
The result of the operator is an example set in which each session is represented by a single example. The examples have many integer valued attributes each of which corresponds to a resource. The value of such an attribute represents the number of times the resource has been requested during the session.
Note that performing association analysis may require further processing. For example, integer attributes must be transformed to binomial ones in order that the FP-Growth operator can be applied.
