Upgrade Python on Data Repository


Article ID: 141678


Updated On:


CA Infrastructure Management CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration DX NetOps


Our security scans flagged python on our systems where we have Data Repository (3 separate nodes).

We would like to know if we can upgrade python itself or it's related and connected to CAPM version.


Vertica uses Python and installs a version under



Release : 21.2.3+

Component : IM Data Repository


You cannot upgrade the bundled python manually

If it is within /opt/vertica/ then you may not upgrade or modify it.


If it is outside of that path, then PM is not affected by the install, and you can upgrade or remove it as you need.


Additional Information

Dx NetOps performance management 21.2.3+ ships with python 3.7.4
