"what is a very large database?" was a question heard often at the first International Conference on Very Large Data Bases(VLDBs). It is clear that the question is of interest to a large number of users and researchers in the database field[S]. • After some study, we have concludes that there has been little written at all on the question of now one can measure databases. ~lany articles have appeared that analyze or measure the performance of a specific algorithm or data organization method… Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that this method goes some way towards the problem of introducing a little more rigour into the development, evaluation and evolution of metrics for the software engineer. Expand
Dynamic restructuring of databases with generation data structures
TLDR
The approach is to leave the database in situ and to permit a mixture (several generations) of structures to co-exist to allow for the evolution from one schema to the next. Expand
