Temporary tables and miscellaneous schemas

Whenever I create a temporary table, with something like

CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE temptable1 AS SELECT * FROM paid.ad_hoc_que ry;

New schemas appear, with names like "pg_temp_1" . I guess the appearance
of these schemas with "temp" in the name indicates that they are
"temporary" schemas and related to the temporary table creation, but the
schemas persist even after the end of the session in which the temporary
table was created.

What's up with these miscellaneous schemas? Are they in fact related to
the creation of temporary tables? Should they disappear when the session
closes, as should the temporary table? If they continue persisting after
the session closes, how do I get rid of them?

How about if we add a UNION that does:
UNION
SELECT 'non-local temp schemas skipped', NULL


I think showing that would only be appropriate if we actually *did* skip
some. Finding that out would complicate the query unduly IMHO.
I see a few goals here:
Prevent \dn from showing lots of lines for large installs
Show the local temp schema so people can query it


If those are agreed to be the goals then we end up with your original
solution (or a working implementation of same anyway).

I'd like to see some input from other people about what they want...


I have added this to the TODO list:

* Have psql \dn show only visible schemas using current_schemas ()

I know there was talk of showing all schemas only in admin mode, but I
don't think we want to implement different behavior until we have a more
practical reason to have such a mode distiction. Of course, \dn will
have to be documented that is supresses non-visible schemas, and admins
can always do a select from pg_namespace.

Dear Sirs, I have been developing an application on Windows with MySQL 3.23, making use of temporary tables. Now when I try to port the application to a Unix box running also MySQL 3.23, I keep running into "access denied" errors with the queries which employ temporary tables. This only happens with CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE type queries, all other queries work fine.

Using SQL against a DB2 table the 'with' key word is used to dynamically create a temporary table with an SQL statement that is retained for the duration of that SQL statement. What is the equivalent to the SQL 'with' using TSQL? If there is not one, what is the TSQL solution to creating a temporary table that is associated with an SQL statement? Examples would be appreciated. Thank you!!

Hi, we are currently implementing an application running on DB2 V7 on Z/OS using largely COBOL stored procedures, managed using WLM. Some of these stored procedures declared global temporary tables, which are declared with ON COMMIT DELETE ROWS to perform work on and then return these temporary tables to the client (which is a message driven EJB connecting via DB2 connect). The client reads the data in the result sets, creates some XML...

Hi, I have a question regarding best practices in database design. In a relational database, is it wise/necessary to sometimes create tables that are not related to other tables through a foreign Key relationship or does this always indicate some sort of underlying design flaw. Something that requires a re evaluation of the problem domain? The reason I ask is because in our application, the user can perform x
