OLTP Benchmark PDG

The TPC is requesting proposals for the next On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) workload to be developed into a new TPC Benchmark. The TPC has over a decade's worth of experience in providing industry standard workloads like TPC-A/B (simple OLTP), TPC-C (complex OLTP), TPC-D (decision support), TPC-H (ad-hoc decision support), TPC-R (business reporting) and TPC-W (web based e-commerce).

The Proposal Development Guidelines document (PDF 83KB)addresses the requirements for an OLTP workload. The requirements cover all aspects of a proposed benchmark, including: benchmark overview and design goals, database design and population, transaction profiles, run-time and statistics reporting, configuration limits and reporting, auditing and full disclosure reports. The presentation of a response should be visual (presentation) along with a draft benchmark specification (similar to the above mentioned benchmarks).

Companies interested in submitting proposals should contact the TPC Administrator at
