Abstract : Benchmarks are important tools for measuring the performance of database management systems (DBMS) and for understanding vendor claims of performance. This paper defines DBMS benchmarks, explores the role of the Transaction Processing Performance Council as the only benchmark standards organization, and surveys eight existing DBMS benchmarks for on-line transaction processing, relational, and object-oriented databases.
