Summary

(Learn how and when to remove this template message)

Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC), founded in 1988, "is a non-profit organization founded [...] to define transaction processing and database benchmarks and to disseminate objective, verifiable TPC performance data to the industry".[1] TPC benchmarks are used in evaluating the performance of computer systems; the results are published on the TPC web site.

Conference Series edit

In 2009 the TPC initiated an International Technology Conference Series on Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking (TPCTC). It is a leading forum for industry experts and researcher to debate and develop innovative techniques for evaluation, measurement and characterization of modern application systems. The conference series was founded by Raghunath Nambiar (Cisco) and Meikel Poess in 2009.

Standards edit

  • TPC-C - On-line transaction processing (since 1992)[13][14]
  • TPC-H - Ad-hoc decision support system (since 1999)
  • TPC-E - Complex on-line transaction processing (since 2006)
  • TPC-DS - Complex decisions support system (since 2011)[15]
  • TPC-DI - Data integration (since 2013)
  • TPCx-HS - Industry's first standard for benchmarking Big Data (Hadoop) systems (since 2014)[16]

Obsolete benchmarks edit
