FLUSH TABLES

Completes all in-progress DDL and DML transactions (writes) that are running against any databases in the cluster. Then, for each database in the cluster, makes every table available for reads, but not writes.

Syntax

FLUSH TABLES WITH READ [ LOCK | ONLY ]

Remarks

  • FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK blocks any DDL and DML transactions (writes) that are initiated following the execution of the command.

  • FLUSH TABLES WITH READ ONLY fails any DDL and DML transactions (writes) that are initiated following the execution of the command.

  • If you have any pipelines currently running, it is recommended to stop them before executing the FLUSH TABLES.. command. Do not create/drop/start/stop pipelines before executing the UNLOCK TABLES command.

  • Running UNLOCK TABLES after FLUSH TABLES.. will make the cluster available for writes. Running UNLOCK TABLES after FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK, specifically, will also unblock any writes that were initiated after FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK was submitted.

  • This command must be run on the master aggregator node or a child aggregator node (see Node Requirements for MemSQL Commands ).

Example

FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK;
