drop shards

Drops an existing shard using the shard id (sid). Use list shards for an overview of the current shards. This statement requires all pools to have at least one online server. The number of dropped shard in the result message only contains the dropped shards of one member of a pool, not the shards which are dropped by a replica. This is different from the count shards statement which includes the shards on replica servers as well.


This statement is protected with a threshold. See drop series and alter database for more information about this threshold value.
