Hi. I would like to call a function much like onData() gets called on an hour tick set by my resolution but i need to call this function every second to check for some stuff without changing my hourly resolution for my trades. any pointers? thanks.

If we want to access second-resolution data, that is the lowest resolution we have to subcribe to.
In your algorithm, you will create a consolidator that will consolidate second-resolution data into hour-resolution bars. The trades will be placed in an event handler attached to the consolidator. Since you are using second-resolution data, your trades will be filled at that resolution.
Please checkout the docs, under Consolidating Data, for further explanation and code snippets.

So something like this for executing something every second but for hour trading ...

AddCrypto("BTCUSD", Resolution.Second, Market.GDAX);
           
var hourConsolidator= new TradeBarConsolidator(3600);
hourConsolidator.DataConsolidated += HourHandler;
SubscriptionManager.AddConsolidator(symbolData.Symbol, hourConsolidator);
            
var secondConsolidator= new TradeBarConsolidator(1);
secondConsolidator.DataConsolidated += SecondsHandler;
SubscriptionManager.AddConsolidator(symbolData.Symbol, secondConsolidator);

Yes and no.
Since you are subscribing to second-resolution data, the data will arrive OnData event handler, so you don't need to create the secondConsolidator.
