Attach a data node to a hypertable. The data node should have been previously created using add_data_node.

When a distributed hypertable is created it will by default use all available data nodes for the hypertable, but if a data node is added after a hypertable is created, the data node will not automatically be used by existing distributed hypertables.

If you want a hypertable to use a data node that was created later, you must attach the data node to the hypertable using this function.

Required Arguments

node_nameName of data node to attach
hypertableName of distributed hypertable to attach node to

Optional Arguments

if_not_attachedPrevents error if the data node is already attached to the hypertable. A notice will be printed that the data node is attached. Defaults to FALSE.
repartitionChange the partitioning configuration so that all the attached data nodes are used. Defaults to TRUE.


hypertable_idHypertable id of the modified hypertable
node_hypertable_idHypertable id on the remote data node
node_nameName of the attached data node

Sample Usage

Attach a data node dn3 to a distributed hypertable conditions previously created with create_distributed_hypertable.

SELECT * FROM attach_data_node('dn3','conditions');

hypertable_id | node_hypertable_id |  node_name
            5 |                  3 | dn3

(1 row)


You must add a data node to your distributed database first with add_data_node first before attaching it.
