Delete data flow

A delete operation consists of a defined data flow between the StorageGRID Webscale system and the client. The system uses attributes to track the deletion of the object from all of its locations within the system.

When a client triggers a delete, all copies of an object are removed from the system.


Delete data flow

  1. The LDR service receives a delete command from the client application.
  2. The LDR service forwards the delete request to the DDS service, which instructs the ILM engine to remove all copies of object data.
  3. The object is removed from the system and is no longer known by the client.
