Table information for 'tap_schema.tapjobs'


Table Description: A non-standard (and not tap-accessible) table used for managing asynchronous TAP jobs. It is manipulated through TAP job creation and destruction internally. Under very special circumstances, operators can use the gavo admin cleantap command to purge jobs from this table. Note that such jobs have corresponding directories in $STATEDIR/uwsjobs, which will be orphaned if this table is manipulated through SQL.

This table is not available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: ChiVO's Table Access Protocol (TAP) service with table metadata.
