        "buckets_path": "the_sum"
    }
}

The following snippet calculates the stats for monthly sales:

POST /sales/_search
{
    "size": 0,
    "aggs" : {
        "sales_per_month" : {
            "date_histogram" : {
                "field" : "date",
                "interval" : "month"
            },
            "aggs": {
                "sales": {
                    "sum": {
                        "field": "price"
                    }
                }
            }
        },
        "stats_monthly_sales": {
            "stats_bucket": {
                "buckets_path": "sales_per_month>sales" 
            }
        }
    }
}

bucket_paths instructs this stats_bucket aggregation that we want the calculate stats for the sales aggregation in the sales_per_month date histogram.

And the following may be the response:

   "timed_out": false,
