YCSB and TPC-H: Big Data and Decision Support Benchmarks



In computing, a benchmark is the result of running a set of computer programs or a computer program, in order to assess relative performance by running a series of standard tests. By doing this, researchers highlight the characteristics of certain systems and are able to rank the system against the rest. On the other hand, BigData is a hot topic. It not only deals with large amounts of data sets and the procedures and tools used to analyze and manipulate them, but also to a computational turn in research and thought. At the same time, Decision Support applications are related to Big Data as they need to deal with large datasets. In this paper we describe two of the most popular benchmarks, one representing Decision Support Systems (TPC-H), and the other represents the Big Data class (YCSB - Yahoo Cloud Serving Benchmark).
