NAME

       DROP_TABLESPACE - remove a tablespace

SYNOPSIS

       DROP TABLESPACE [ IF EXISTS ] 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.

       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.
