Published 5 times per year, the TPC Benchmark Status Report is a digest of the activities of the TPC and its technical subcommittees.
The TPC held a General Council meeting on December 6th, in Santa Ana, CA. On the OLTP front, the TPC-E Maintenance Subcommittee made editorial and clarifications to the TPC-E benchmark, resulting in Version 1.4.0, while the TPC-C Maintenance Subcommittee continued work on reconciling the list of TAB interpretations. With respect to decision support, the TPC-DS specification draft is going through the TPC's evaluation process. Finally, new definitions to enable the use of virtualization products are being proposed for TPC-App.
