Packages installed by default when creating a new DB?

Post by beth » Thu May 26, 2016 8:39 pm

Hi all,

I just installed Vertica 7.2.3 and created a new database. I noticed that all of the following packages were installed automatically.

Is there documentation online that explains the purpose of each package?

Code: Select all

Automatically installing extension packages
Package: AWS
        Success: package AWS successfully installed
Package: idol
        Success: package idol successfully installed
Package: kafka
        Success: package kafka successfully installed
Package: flextable
        Success: package flextable successfully installed
Package: approximate
        Success: package approximate successfully installed
Package: logsearch
        Success: package logsearch successfully installed
Package: txtindex
        Success: package txtindex successfully installed
Package: hdfsconnector
        Success: package hdfsconnector successfully installed
Database beth_test created successfully.

Nothing on the surface. You have to dig into the documentation and some things you'll need to guess.

Package: AWS - probably loading from S3
Package: idol - probably using flex tables with the IDOL connector
Package: kafka - kafka integration
Package: flextable - flex table
Package: approximate - for the APPROXIMATE_COUNT_* functions
Package: logsearch - either to do with IDOL's functionality or something else that allows for log analysis
Package: txtindex - probably an IDOL package
Package: hdfsconnector - HDFS integration
