  /**
    @class
    <p>The DateHistogram facet works with time-based values by building a histogram across time
       intervals of the <code>value</code> field. Each value is <em>rounded</em> into an interval (or
       placed in a bucket), and statistics are provided per interval/bucket (count and total).</p>

    <p>Facets are similar to SQL <code>GROUP BY</code> statements but perform much
       better. You can also construct several <em>"groups"</em> at once by simply
       specifying multiple facets.</p>
