I need to count viewers by program for a streaming channel from a json logfile. I identify the programs by their starttimes, such as:

So far I have two Dataframes like this:

The first one contains all the timestamps from the logfile

viewers_from_log = pd.read_json('sqllog.json', encoding='UTF-8')

# Convert date string to pandas datetime object:

viewers_from_log['time'] = pd.to_datetime(viewers_from_log['time'])

enter image description here

Source JSON file:

[

    {

        "logid": 191605,

        "time": "0:00:17"

    },

    {

        "logid": 191607,

        "time": "0:00:26"

    },

    {

        "logid": 191611,

        "time": "0:01:20"

    }

]

The second contains the starting times and titles of the programs

programs_start_time = pd.DataFrame.from_dict('programs.json', orient='index')

enter image description here

Source JSON file:

{

    "2019-05-29": [

        {

            "title": "\"Amiről a kövek mesélnek\"",

            "startTime_dt": "2019-05-29T00:00:40Z"

        },

        {

            "title": "Koffer - Kedvcsináló Kul(t)túrák Külföldön",

            "startTime_dt": "2019-05-29T00:22:44Z"

        },

        {

            "title": "Gubancok",

            "startTime_dt": "2019-05-29T00:48:08Z"

        }

    ]

}

So what I need to do is to count the entries / program in the log file and link them to the program titles.

1.Slice log data for each date range from program data and get the shape.

2.Next add column for program data with results:

import pandas as pd

# setup test data

log_data = {'Time': ['2019-05-30 00:00:26', '2019-05-30 00:00:50', '2019-05-30 00:05:50','2019-05-30 00:23:26']}

log_data = pd.DataFrame(data=log_data)

program_data = {'Time': ['2019-05-30 00:00:00', '2019-05-30 00:22:44'],

            'Program': ['Program 1', 'Program 2']}

program_data = pd.DataFrame(data=program_data)

counts = []

for index, row in program_data.iterrows():

    # get counts on selected range

    try:

        log_range = log_data[(log_data['Time'] > program_data.loc[index].values[0]) & (log_data['Time'] < program_data.loc[index+1].values[0])]

        counts.append(log_range.shape[0])

    except:

        log_range = log_data[log_data['Time'] > program_data.loc[index].values[0]]

        counts.append(log_range.shape[0])

 # add additional column with collected counts

 program_data['Counts'] = counts

Output:

                  Time    Program  Counts

 0  2019-05-30 00:00:00  Program 1       3

 1  2019-05-30 00:22:44  Program 2       1
