MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  ndb_drop_table — Drop an NDB Table

18.4.12 ndb_drop_table — Drop an NDB Table

ndb_drop_table drops the specified NDB table. (If you try to use this on a table created with a storage engine other than NDB, the attempt fails with the error 723: No such table exists.) This operation is extremely fast; in some cases, it can be an order of magnitude faster than using a MySQL DROP TABLE statement on an NDB table.

Usage

ndb_drop_table -c connection_string tbl_name -d db_name

The following table includes options that are specific to ndb_drop_table. Additional descriptions follow the table. For options common to most NDB Cluster programs (including ndb_drop_table), see Section 18.4.29, “Options Common to NDB Cluster Programs — Options Common to NDB Cluster Programs”.
