Table keywords


Order rows storage to make use of the on-disk sorting of columns. Specifying order can make query results more efficient. Options are:

ASC: ascending (default order)

DESC: descending, reverse order


If a table is accidentally dropped with DROP TABLE, use this option to recreate the table and run a commit log replay to retrieve the data.
