File window datasets in distribution shift validation

File window datasets are often used in ML use cases to monitor data drifts.

Using a production training dataset as reference dataset, as new data is collected, you can monitor distribution shift metrics between the reference dataset and the newly collected dataset.

For information on numeric reference metrics, such as relative entropy, refer to the Numeric distribution or Categorical distribution Validator types.
