Summary
TPC Benchmark™ W (TPC-W) is a transactional web benchmark. The workload is performed in a controlled internet commerce environment that simulates the activities of a business oriented transactional web server. The workload exercises a breadth of system components associated with such environments, which are characterized by:
  • Multiple on-line browser sessions 
  • Dynamic page generation with database access and update
  • Consistent web objects
  • The simultaneous execution of multiple transaction types that span a breadth of complexity
  • On-line transaction execution modes
  • Databases consisting of many tables with a wide variety of sizes, attributes, and relationships
  • Transaction integrity (ACID properties)
  • Contention on data access and update
The performance metric reported by TPC-W is the number of web interactions processed per second. Multiple web interactions are used to simulate the activity of a retail store, and each interaction is subject to a response time constraint. 

TPC-W simulates three different profiles by varying the ratio of browse to buy: primarily shopping (WIPS), browsing (WIPSb) and web-based ordering (WIPSo). The primary metrics are the WIPS rate, the associated price per WIPS ($/WIPS), and the availability date of the priced configuration.
