The command-line utilities provided with Greenplum Database.
Greenplum Database uses the standard PostgreSQL client and server programs and provides additional management utilities for administering a distributed Greenplum Database DBMS.
Several utilities are installed when you install the Greenplum Database server. These utilities reside in $GPHOME/bin. Other utilities must be downloaded from Pivotal Network and installed separately. These include:
- The Pivotal Greenplum Backup and Restore utilities.
- The Pivotal Greenplum gpcopy utility.
- The Pivotal Greenplum-Kafka Integration utilities.
- The Pivotal Greenplum Streaming Server utilities.
Additionally, the Pivotal Greenplum Client and Loader Tools is a separate download from Pivotal Network that includes selected utilities from the Greenplum Database server installation that you can install on a client system.
Greenplum Database provides the following utility programs. Superscripts identify those utilities that require separate downloads, as well as those utilities that are also installed with the Client and Loader Tools Packages. (See the Note following the table.) All utilities are installed when you install the Greenplum Database server, unless specifically identified by a superscript.
