NAME
whisper-create - create a whisper database SYNOPSYS
whisper-create path secondsPerPoint:pointsToStore [secondsPerPoint:pointsToStore]* DESCRIPTION
This command creates a new whisper fixed-size database. For each database you specify one or more pairs of numbers describing how data points should be archived in this database. The first part of the pair is the precision, the second part of the pair is how many data points should be stored. You cannot configure two archives with the same precision inside a single database. Higher precision archives must evenly divide all lower precision archives' precision. The options are described below. OPTIONS
--overwrite Overwrite an existing database. --xFilesFactor The fraction of data points in a propagation interval that must have known values for a propagation to occur. -h, --help Show the embedded help. AUTHOR
whisper is a fixed size database, created by Chris Davis. This manual page was written by Elliot Murphy <elliot@ubuntu.com>, for the Debian project (but may be used by others). WHISPER-CREATE(1)

CREATE 
TABLESPACE(7) SQL Commands CREATE TABLESPACE(7) NAME
CREATE TABLESPACE - define a new tablespace SYNOPSIS
CREATE TABLESPACE tablespacename [ OWNER username ] LOCATION 'directory' DESCRIPTION
CREATE TABLESPACE registers a new cluster-wide tablespace. The tablespace name must be distinct from the name of any existing tablespace in the database cluster. A tablespace allows superusers to define an alternative location on the file system where the data files containing database objects (such as tables and indexes) can reside. A user with appropriate privileges can pass tablespacename to CREATE DATABASE, CREATE TABLE, CREATE INDEX or ADD CONSTRAINT to have the data files for these objects stored within the specified tablespace. PARAMETERS
tablespacename The name of a tablespace to be created. The name cannot begin with pg_, as such names are reserved for system tablespaces. username The name of the user who will own the tablespace. If omitted, defaults to the user executing the command. Only superusers can create tablespaces, but they can assign ownership of tablespaces to non-superusers. directory The directory that will be used for the tablespace. The directory must be empty and must be owned by the PostgreSQL system user. The directory must be specified by an absolute path name. NOTES
Tablespaces are only supported on systems that support symbolic links. CREATE TABLESPACE cannot be executed inside a transaction block. EXAMPLES
Create a tablespace dbspace at /data/dbs: CREATE TABLESPACE dbspace LOCATION '/data/dbs'; Create a tablespace indexspace at /data/indexes owned by user genevieve: CREATE TABLESPACE indexspace OWNER genevieve LOCATION '/data/indexes'; COMPATIBILITY
CREATE TABLESPACE is a PostgreSQL extension. SEE ALSO
