SingleStore (MemSQL) connector#

The SingleStore (formerly known as MemSQL) connector allows querying and creating tables in an external SingleStore database. The SingleStore connector is very similar to the MySQL connector with the only difference being the underlying driver.


To configure the SingleStore connector, create a catalog properties file in etc/catalog named, for example,, to mount the SingleStore connector as the memsql catalog. Create the file with the following contents, replacing the connection properties as appropriate for your setup:

Multiple SingleStore servers#

You can have as many catalogs as you need, so if you have additional SingleStore servers, simply add another properties file to etc/catalog with a different name (making sure it ends in .properties). For example, if you name the property file, Trino will create a catalog named sales using the configured connector.

Querying SingleStore#

The SingleStore connector provides a schema for every SingleStore database. You can see the available SingleStore databases by running SHOW SCHEMAS:


If you have a SingleStore database named web, you can view the tables in this database by running SHOW TABLES:

SHOW TABLES FROM memsql.web;

You can see a list of the columns in the clicks table in the web database using either of the following:

DESCRIBE memsql.web.clicks;
SHOW COLUMNS FROM memsql.web.clicks;

Finally, you can access the clicks table in the web database:

SELECT * FROM memsql.web.clicks;

If you used a different name for your catalog properties file, use that catalog name instead of memsql in the above examples.


The connector supports pushdown for a number of operations:
