ABSTRACT
<p>A methodology is presented for evaluating the performance of database update schemes in a distributive environment. The methodology makes use of the history of how data are used in the database. Parameters such as update-to-retrieval ratio and average file size can be set based on the actual characterization of a system. The analysis is specifically directed toward the support of derived data within the relational model. Because concurrency is a major problem in a distributive system, the support of derived data is analyzed with respect to three distributive concurrency control techniques: master/slave, distributed, and synchronized.</p>
