Limited Access to System Tables

The majority of Vertica's system tables from V_MONITORING and V_CATALOG schemata for introspecting your logical (tables) and physical (projections) data model in Data Warehouse are accessible.

You can access the available system tables only without the schema quantifier:

  • SELECT * FROM tables – works
  • SELECT * FROM v_catalog.tables – does not work

You can access the following tables:
