Automatic delete in vertica




We are planning to delete the data present in the table every month. Is there any way to do it automatically each month?


  • Hi ,

    database vendors don't like to take the chance and responsibility for your data in case of a bug's and stuff like this , this is the main reason why you will not see this capability in any of the main databases vendors products .


    The answer to your question is :NO ,vertica like other database vendors do not provide such capabilities out of the box , however very you can get it by develop very simple cron script that will drop your  the relevent monthly partition each moth .


    I hope you will find it useful
