In this article, we examined a total of 14 traces representing both industry standard benchmarks (TPC-C and TPC-D [TPC 1997a; TPC 1997b]) and the production workloads from ten of the world's largest corporations.
The TPC-D benchmark models the analysis end of the business environment where trends are analyzed and refined to support sound business decisions [TPC 1997b].
As with TPC-C, the TPC-D benchmark specifies a method for scaling the database.
These auxiliary tables contain partially aggregated data which can be precomputed in the database load phase so that very little processing needs to be done when executing the TPC-D queries.
For instance, for TPC-D, each of the 17 queries is implemented as a database transaction, while the two update streams are broken down into smaller database transactions.

The TPC-D benchmark represents a broad range of decision-support applications.
NCR's TPC-D 300GB results -- which are two to three times better than the nearest competitor -- are:

Using a set of 17 industry-standard queries that replicate a complex query-type application environment, IBM is the first database vendor to announce TPC-D benchmark on Windows NT.
The three virtualized databases must have the same attributes, including the same number of TPC-C warehouses, the same number of TPC-E load units, or the same TPC-DS or TPC-H scale factors.
