DISCARD releases internal resources associated with a database session. These resources are normally released at the end of the session.
DISCARD TEMP drops all temporary tables created in the current session. DISCARD PLANS releases all internally cached query plans. DISCARD ALL resets a session to its original state, discarding temporary resources and resetting session-local configuration changes.
