DBT-5: An Open-Source TPC-E Implementation for Global Performance Measurement of Computer Systems

Rilson O. Nascimento, Paulo R. M. Maciel

Abstract


TPC-E is the new benchmark approved by the TPC council. It is designed to exercise a brokerage firm workload, which is representative of current On-Line Transaction Processing workloads. In this paper we present DBT-5, a fair usage open-source implementation of the TPC-E benchmark. In addition to reporting about the design and implementation of the tool, experimental results from a system running database engine are also described. The significance of this work is that it provides an environment where recent innovations in the OLTP workload field can be evaluated.
