Multi-Core, Main-Memory Joins: Sort vs. Hash Revisited


In this paper we experimentally study the performance of main-memory, parallel, multi-core join algorithms, focusing on sort-merge and (radix-)hash join. The relative performance of these two join approaches have been a topic of discussion for a long time. With the advent of modern multicore architectures, it has been argued that sort-merge join is now a… (More)
