public enum DistributionPolicy

Member nameDescription
Hash

Distribution by HASH: Columns that are explicitly specified by using the syntax serve as the keys for a hash function, and this determines which rows go into which segment.

None

NONE: if you specify this option explicitly then there is only one segment which is the entire index.

Replicate

REPLICATE: the index will have only ONE segment, and it will be fully replicated on all bricks.

SegmentedHeap

If the table doesn’t have a clustered index, the table property will show value SegmentedHeap.

Undefined

UNDEFINED: One of the reasons is that the DB has been just attached.
