NAME

       DROP_TABLESPACE - remove a tablespace

SYNOPSIS

       DROP TABLESPACE [ IF EXISTS ] tablespace_name

DESCRIPTION

       DROP TABLESPACE removes a tablespace from the system.

       A tablespace can only be dropped by its owner or a superuser. The
       tablespace must be empty of all database objects before it can be
       dropped. It is possible that objects in other databases might still
       reside in the tablespace even if no objects in the current database are
       using the tablespace. Also, if the tablespace is listed in the
       temp_tablespaces setting of any active session, the DROP might fail due
       to temporary files residing in the tablespace.

PARAMETERS

       IF EXISTS
           Do not throw an error if the tablespace does not exist. A notice is
           issued in this case.

       tablespace_name
           The name of a tablespace.

NOTES

       DROP TABLESPACE cannot be executed inside a transaction block.

EXAMPLES

       To remove tablespace mystuff from the system:

           DROP TABLESPACE mystuff;

COMPATIBILITY

       DROP TABLESPACE is a PostgreSQL extension.
