One Thousand Transactions per Second

  title={One Thousand Transactions per Second},
  author={Jim Gray and Pete Homan and Harald Sammer and Bob Good and Dieter Gawlick},
Several companies intend to provide general-purpose transaction processing systems capable of one thousand transactions per second. This paper surveys the need for such systems and contrasts the approaches being taken by three different groups. 
Thousands of DebitCredit Transactions-Per-Second: Easy and Inexpensive
A $2k computer can execute about 8k transactions per second. This is 80x more than one of the largest US bank's 1970's traffic - it approximates the total US 1970's financial transaction volume. Very
A measure of transaction processing power
These benchmarks measure the performance of diverse transaction processing systems and a standard system cost measure is stated and used to define price/performance metrics.
An architecture for high volume transaction processing
A commercially,vailable multiple processor system that lelivers mainframe class performance for high volume transaction processing and discusses the tradeoffs in selecting a large number of small processors versus a small number of large processors.
Thirty Years of Server Technology - From Transaction Processing to Web Services
This contribution will identify mechanisms that have been developed in the context of transaction processing and database management and generalize them to server processing of any kind.
Distributed Database Systems in High-Speed Wide-Area Networks
A concurrency control protocol that performs better than traditional DDBSs in high-speed networks is developed that is at the heart of the overall functioning of the distributed system.

The authors suggest that the public telecommunications network is evolving towards a database-driven architecture in which centralized databases are consulted as a part of normal call-processing to
A performance comparison of two architectures for fast transaction processing
The authors use a simulation model to study the behavior of two different architectures, namely shared everything and shared nothing, and quantify the effects of intraquery parallelism on both architectures under different operating conditions.
Extended Memory Support for High Performance Transaction Systems
This work proposes the use of a fast and non-volatile extended memory which provides synchronous access for closely coupled systems and investigates its performance behavior for centralized and distributed computing environments.
The Case for Orderly Sharing
The principle of orderly sharing is introduced — the efficient coordination of many loosely coupled processing elements acting on shared resources through orderly distribution of information regarding the state of resources throughout the system.
Analysis of database performance with dynamic locking
The decomposition solution method and the associated iterative scheme are shown to be more accurate than previously defined methods for dynamic locking through validation against simulation results.


Transaction Monitoring in ENCOMPASS: Reliable Distributed Transaction Processing
The Transaction Monitoring Facility (TMF), is a component of the ENCOMPASS distributed data management system, which runs on the Tandem computer system, and provides continuous, fault-tolerant transaction processing in a decentralized, distributed environment.
