13.1.25 DROP LOGFILE GROUP Syntax

DROP LOGFILE GROUP logfile_group
    ENGINE [=] engine_name

This statement drops the log file group named logfile_group. The log file group must already exist or an error results. (For information on creating log file groups, see Section 13.1.14, “CREATE LOGFILE GROUP Syntax”.)

Important

Before dropping a log file group, you must drop all tablespaces that use that log file group for UNDO logging.

The required ENGINE clause provides the name of the storage engine used by the log file group to be dropped. Currently, the only permitted values for engine_name are NDB and NDBCLUSTER.

DROP LOGFILE GROUP is useful only with Disk Data storage for MySQL Cluster. See Section 18.5.12, “MySQL Cluster Disk Data Tables”.
