<p>Rinda, a database processor that accelerates nonindexed relational database queries, is described. Rinda is composed of content search processors and relational operational accelerating processors; the former, search rows stored in disk storage, and the latter sort rows stored in the main memory. The processors connect to a general-purpose host computer with channel interfaces. Performance results show that Rinda executes queries three to 100 times faster then conventional database-management system software in a benchmark system.</p>
