Data stored in Hydrolix doesn't often change. But occasionally it's required, sometimes for compliance or regulatory reasons. The Alter service enables you to edit or delete rows and columns.
The Alter service uses the following architecture:
|Scale to 0
|Used to route traffic from a single point to multiple Query Heads.
|Receives queries. Delegates sub-queries on partition ranges to Query Peers. Aggregates Query Peer responses to generate a query result.
|Alter Job Queues
|Contain a list of alter jobs to be completed.
|Retrieves alter jobs from the queue and splits them into alter tasks that apply to a single partition. Sends those tasks to the Alter Task Queue.
|Alter Task Queue
|Contain a list of single-partition tasks. Multiple tasks make up a single job.
|Executes alter tasks and returns results to the alter head.
|Alter Job State Tracker
|Contains the state of all alter tasks.
|Hydrolix Database Storage Bucket
|Contains the partitions that comprise the database. Part of the core infrastructure.
|Contains metadata regarding data stored in Hydrolix. Part of the core infrastructure.
The Alter service uses Query infrastructure for query execution. For more information about query infrastructure, see Query.
