Examining graphs

Graphs have characteristics that can be examined with a variety of commands.


  • A list of all graphs can be retrieved with the following command:


    In Studio and Gremlin console, a list is retrieved, although the presentation is different. Here is a Gremlin console result:

    ==> food
    ==> test
  • A list of all graph and their attributes can be retrieved as well:

    ==>Name: food_cql | Engine: Core | Replication: {replication_factor=1, class=org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleStrategy}
    ==>Name: food_classic | Engine: Classic | Replication: {class=org.apache.cassandra.locator.NetworkTopologyStrategy, SearchGraphAnalytics=1}

    This result shows two different graphs, one with a Core engine and one with a Classic engine. The first listed graph was created without replication settings and defaulted to a replication factor of 1 and a SimpleStrategy.

  • To examine a particular graph, use the describe command:

    ==>system.graph('food').ifNotExists().withReplication("{'class': 'org.apache.cassandra.locator.NetworkTopologyStrategy', 'SearchGraphAnalytics': '1'}").andDurableWrites(true).create()
