Deleting compressed data without decompressing?


I saw that TimescaleDB was working on a solution that will allow you to delete data from compressed chunks without manually having to decompress first.

Do you know anything about when this is gonna be released?

Hi @YBenarab, I saw this is an old question and I was investigating the actual situation. It’s impossible to not decompress as the data should be dropped.

I see that this PR was recently merged: Support UPDATE/DELETE on compressed hypertables. by sb230132 · Pull Request #5339 · timescale/timescaledb · GitHub

Probably It will be released soon in the next version.
