COPY

COPY bulk-loads data into a Vertica database. By default, COPY automatically commits itself and any current transaction except when loading temporary tables. If COPY is terminated or interrupted Vertica rolls it back.

COPY reads data as UTF-8 encoding.

For information on loading one or more files or pipes on a cluster host or on a client system, see COPY LOCAL.
