DROP SPACE deletes everything in the specified graph space.


Only the God role can use the DROP SPACE statement. For more information, see AUTHENTICATION.


DROP SPACE [IF EXISTS] <graph_space_name>;

You can use the IF EXISTS keywords when dropping spaces. These keywords automatically detect if the related graph space exists. If it exists, it will be deleted. Otherwise, no graph space will be deleted.

The DROP SPACE statement does not immediately remove all the files and directories from the disk. You can specify another graph space with the USE statement and submit job compact.


BE CAUTIOUS about running the DROP SPACE statement.
