NAME

       ALTER_TABLESPACE - change the definition of a tablespace

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER TABLESPACE name RENAME TO new_name
       ALTER TABLESPACE name OWNER TO new_owner
       ALTER TABLESPACE name SET ( tablespace_option = value [, ... ] )
       ALTER TABLESPACE name RESET ( tablespace_option [, ... ] )

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER TABLESPACE changes the definition of a tablespace.

       You must own the tablespace to use ALTER TABLESPACE. To alter the
       owner, you must also be a direct or indirect member of the new owning
       role. (Note that superusers have these privileges automatically.)

PARAMETERS

       name
           The name of an existing tablespace.

       new_name
           The new name of the tablespace. The new name cannot begin with pg_,
           as such names are reserved for system tablespaces.

       new_owner
           The new owner of the tablespace.

       tablespace_parameter
           A tablespace parameter to be set or reset. Currently, the only
           available parameters are seq_page_cost and random_page_cost.
           Setting either value for a particular tablespace will override the
           planner's usual estimate of the cost of reading pages from tables
           in that tablespace, as established by the configuration parameters
           of the same name (see seq_page_cost, random_page_cost). This may be
           useful if one tablespace is located on a disk which is faster or
           slower than the remainder of the I/O subsystem.

EXAMPLES

       Rename tablespace index_space to fast_raid:

           ALTER TABLESPACE index_space RENAME TO fast_raid;

       Change the owner of tablespace index_space:

           ALTER TABLESPACE index_space OWNER TO mary;

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER TABLESPACE statement in the SQL standard.
