Usage notes

When dropping a compute pool, Snowflake automatically aborts any running jobs. However, Snowflake does not drop running services. If services are running this command will fail. You need to explicitly drop all running services before dropping a compute pool. You can run ALTER COMPUTE POOL … STOP ALL, which drops both services and jobs. You can also use the DROP SERVICE command to drop individual services.

Examples

The following example drops the compute pool named tutorial_compute_pool:

DROP COMPUTE_POOL tutorial_compute_pool;
