Survey on Big Data and Decision Support Benchmarks



Benchmarking is a common practice for the evaluation of database computer systems. By executing certain benchmarks, manufacturers and researchers are able to highlight the characteristics of a certain system and are also able to rank the system against the rest. On the other hand, at the moment, BigData is a hot topic. It concerns dealing efficiently with information that is challenging to handle, due to volume, velocity or variety. As more and more platforms are proposed to deal with BigData, it becomes important to have benchmarks that can be used to evaluate performance characteristics of such platforms. At the same time, Decision Support applications are related to BigData, as they need to efficiently deal with huge datasets. In this paper we describe benchmarks representing Decision Support Systems (TPC-H, SSB, TPC-DS), and benchmarks for the Big Data class (YCSB, BigBench, and BigFrame), in order to help users to choose the most appropriate one for their needs. We also characterize the relationship between Big Data benchmarks and Decision Support benchmarks.
