TPC Benchmark‚ĄĘDS (TPC-DS): The New Decision Support Benchmark Standard

TPC-DS is the new decision support benchmark that models several generally applicable aspects of a decision support system, including queries and data maintenance. Although the underlying business model of TPC-DS is a retail product supplier, the database schema, data population, queries, data maintenance model and implementation rules have been designed to be broadly representative of modern decision support systems.

This benchmark illustrates decision support systems that:
  • Examine large volumes of data
  • Give answers to real-world business questions
  • Execute queries of various operational requirements and complexities (e.g., ad-hoc, reporting, iterative OLAP, data mining)
  • Are characterized by high CPU and IO load
  • Are periodically synchronized with source OLTP databases through database maintenance functions
