Notes

Deprecated since version 0.0.21.

Wrapper around DataStax Astra DB for vector-store workloads.

For quickstart and details, visit https://docs.datastax.com/en/astra/astra-db-vector/

Example

from langchain_community.vectorstores import AstraDB
from langchain_openai.embeddings import OpenAIEmbeddings

embeddings = OpenAIEmbeddings()
vectorstore = AstraDB(
    embedding=embeddings,
    collection_name="my_store",
    token="AstraCS:...",
    api_endpoint="https://<DB-ID>-<REGION>.apps.astra.datastax.com"
)

vectorstore.add_texts(["Giraffes", "All good here"])
results = vectorstore.similarity_search("Everything's ok", k=1)
Parameters
  • embedding (Embeddings) – embedding function to use.

  • collection_name (str) – name of the Astra DB collection to create/use.

  • token (Optional[str]) – API token for Astra DB usage.

  • api_endpoint (Optional[str]) – full URL to the API endpoint, such as https://<DB-ID>-us-east1.apps.astra.datastax.com.

  • astra_db_client (Optional[LibAstraDB]) – alternative to token+api_endpoint, you can pass an already-created ‘astrapy.db.AstraDB’ instance.

  • async_astra_db_client (Optional[AsyncAstraDB]) – alternative to token+api_endpoint, you can pass an already-created ‘astrapy.db.AsyncAstraDB’ instance.

  • namespace (Optional[str]) – namespace (aka keyspace) where the collection is created. Defaults to the database’s “default namespace”.

  • metric (Optional[str]) – similarity function to use out of those available in Astra DB. If left out, it will use Astra DB API’s defaults (i.e. “cosine” - but, for performance reasons, “dot_product” is suggested if embeddings are normalized to one).

  • batch_size (Optional[int]) – Size of batches for bulk insertions.

  • bulk_insert_batch_concurrency (Optional[int]) – Number of threads or coroutines to insert batches concurrently.

  • bulk_insert_overwrite_concurrency (Optional[int]) – Number of threads or coroutines in a batch to insert pre-existing entries.

  • bulk_delete_concurrency (Optional[int]) – Number of threads (for deleting multiple rows concurrently).

  • pre_delete_collection (bool) – whether to delete the collection before creating it. If False and the collection already exists, the collection will be used as is.

  • setup_mode (SetupMode) –

Note

For concurrency in synchronous add_texts():, as a rule of thumb, on a typical client machine it is suggested to keep the quantity bulk_insert_batch_concurrency * bulk_insert_overwrite_concurrency much below 1000 to avoid exhausting the client multithreading/networking resources. The hardcoded defaults are somewhat conservative to meet most machines’ specs, but a sensible choice to test may be:

  • bulk_insert_batch_concurrency = 80

  • bulk_insert_overwrite_concurrency = 10

A bit of experimentation is required to nail the best results here, depending on both the machine/network specs and the expected workload (specifically, how often a write is an update of an existing id). Remember you can pass concurrency settings to individual calls to add_texts() and add_documents() as well.
