DROP TABLESPACE

Function

DROP TABLESPACE deletes a tablespace.

Precautions

  • Only the tablespace owner or a user granted with the DROP permission can run the DROP TABLESPACE command. The system administrator has this permission by default.
  • The tablespace to be deleted should not contain any database objects. Otherwise, an error will be reported.
  • DROP TABLESPACE cannot be rolled back and therefore cannot be run in transaction blocks.
  • During execution of DROP TABLESPACE, database queries by other sessions using \db may fail and need to be reattempted.
  • If DROP TABLESPACE fails to be executed, run DROP TABLESPACE IF EXISTS.

Syntax

Parameter Description

  • IF EXISTS

    Reports a notice instead of an error if the specified tablespace does not exist.

  • tablespace_name

    Specifies the name of the tablespace to be deleted.

    Value range: an existing tablespace name

Examples
