Available Columns

hypertable_schemaTEXTSchema name of the hypertable
hypertable_nameTEXTTable name of the hypertable
attnameTEXTName of the column used in the compression settings
segmentby_column_indexSMALLINTPosition of attname in the compress_segmentby list
orderby_column_indexSMALLINTPosition of attname in the compress_orderby list
orderby_ascBOOLEANTrue if this is used for order by ASC, False for order by DESC
orderby_nullsfirstBOOLEANTrue if nulls are ordered first for this column, False if nulls are ordered last

Sample Usage

CREATE TABLE hypertab (a_col integer, b_col integer, c_col integer, d_col integer, e_col integer);
SELECT table_name FROM create_hypertable('hypertab', 'a_col');

ALTER TABLE hypertab SET (timescaledb.compress, timescaledb.compress_segmentby = 'a_col,b_col', 
  timescaledb.compress_orderby = 'c_col desc, d_col asc nulls last');

SELECT * FROM timescaledb_information.compression_settings WHERE hypertable_name = 'hypertab';
