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 September 17th in Minneapolis, Minnesota. On the OLTP front, the TPC-E Maintenance Subcommittee made editorial changes to the specification along with updates to EGen, resulting in Version 1.9.0. With respect to decision support, the TPC-H made minor changes to clarify data redundancy and resolved numerous editorial issues in the specification, resulting in Version 2.9.0. The Energy Subcommittee completed the specification to add energy metrics to the existing TPC benchmarks, and Version 1.0.0 is now in mail ballot. Finally, the TPC held a very successful workshop, the TPC TC 2009 Technology conference in Lyon, France, in conjunction with VLDB 2009.
