Vertica Analytics Platform Version 10.0.x Documentation

CREATE ROUTING RULE

Creates a load balancing routing rule that directs incoming client connections from an IP address range to a group of Vertica nodes. This group of Vertica nodes is defined by a load balance group. Once you create a routing rule, any client connection originating from the rule's IP address range is redirected to one of the nodes in the load balance group if the client opts into load balancing.

Syntax

CREATE ROUTING RULE rule_name ROUTE 'address_range' TO group_name

Arguments

rule_name

A name for the routing rule.

'address_range'

The IP address range of incoming client connections to redirect. This range must be in CIDR format.

group_name The name of the load balance group to handle the client connections from the address range. You create this group using the CREATE LOAD BALANCE GROUP statement.

Privileges

The user must be a superuser.

Examples

The following example creates a routing rule that routes all client connections from 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.1.255 to a load balance group named internal_clients:

=> CREATE ROUTING RULE internal_clients ROUTE '192.168.1.0/24' TO group_internal;
