    Functions loaded, you may refer to functions now...
    Description: Retrieves a series of values from a stored profile.
        profile - The name of the profile.
        entity - The name of the entity.
        durationAgo - How long ago should values be retrieved from?
        periods - The list of profile periods to grab. These are ProfilePeriod objects.
        groups - Optional, must correspond to the 'groupBy' list used in profile creation - List (in square brackets) of groupBy values used to filter the profile. Default is the empty list, meaning groupBy was not used when creating the profile.
        config_overrides - Optional - Map (in curly braces) of name:value pairs, each overriding the global config parameter of the same name. Default is the empty Map, meaning no overrides.
    Returns: The profile measurements.

    In the preceeding example, we use the Stellar Shell to replicate the execution environment of Stellar running in a Storm topology, like Metron's Parser or Enrichment topology. Replace 'node1:2181' with the URL to a ZooKeeper Broker.
    The client API call above retrieves the past hour of the test profile for the entity
