                           TPC-C
 Become   the de facto standard for OLTP performance since its
  introduction in July, 1992.
 Moderately complex OLTP.
 Application models a wholesale supplier managing orders.
 Order-entry provides a conceptual model for the benchmark;
  underlying components are typical of any OLTP system.
 Workload consists of five transaction types.
 Metrics are new-order transaction rate (tpmC) and
  price/performance ($/tpmC).
                                                            5




                           TPC-H
 Became   a benchmark in April 1999 when TPC-D was split into
  two benchmarks.
 Models an ad-hoc decision support environment in which
  users don’t know the queries in advance and the execution
  times can be very long.
 Workload consists of 22 complex read-only queries and 2
  update transactions.
 Workload measures the performance of a single power user
  and multiple concurrent users.
 Metrics combine the single user power rating and multi-
  stream rating into single metric: (QphH) and
  price/performance ($/QphH).
                                                            6




                           TPC-R
 Became   a benchmark in April 1999 when TPC-D was split into
  two benchmarks.
 Models an environment in which users do know the queries in
  advance.
 Workload consists of same set of transaction as in TPC-H (22
  complex read-only queries and 2 update transactions).
 Workload measures the performance of a single power user
  and multiple concurrent users.
 Metrics combine the single user power rating and multi-
  stream rating into single metric: (QphR) and
  price/performance ($/QphR).
                                                            7




                           TPC-W
 Scheduled   to become a TPC benchmark in 2000.

 TPC-W represents Internet and Intranet E-Commerce
 environments.

 Measures   a large number of users browsing and ordering on-
 line.

 Primarymetrics will be Web Interactions Per Second (WIPS)
 and price/performance ($/WIPS).

 TPC-W opens the door to many new players and new
 technologies!
