Published 4 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 November 20th in Dana Point, CA. On the OLTP front, the TPC-E Maintenance Subcommittee made bug fixes to EGen along with editorial changes and clarifications to the TPC-E benchmark, resulting in Version 1.7.0, while the TPC-C Maintenance Subcommittee continued work on reconciling the list of Technical Advisory Board interpretations. With respect to decision support, a discussion was initiated to explore future enhancements to the TPC-H benchmark. Finally, the TPC has formed the ETL Development Subcommittee to develop a new ETL benchmark.
