Abstract

Significant portions of the business oriented information processing performed in the commercial market place are headed towards (or already arrived at) a heavy dependence on Database Management Systems. With that movement under way, our ability to measure, evaluate, and compare different Database Management Systems is dramatically limited. This paper examines the underlying design considerations in developing a system and the current as well as previous attempts at measuring performance in this area. Then an evaluation methodology design to measure and compare distributed system is proposed and tested. The methodology developed will support evaluations and comparisons of entire Distributed Relational Database Management Systems or evaluations of the design and performance of various individual components of those systems.
