The method used by summarizers is a simple counting mechanism coupled with timestamps. The summarizer checks whether each data item it receives matches any item it has seen before. If the data item matches an existing item, the summary count for that item is incremented. If the data item does not match, a new slot for the item is created and its count is set to 1.
