Architecture of a database system by Joseph M Hellerstein ( )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Database Management Systems (DBMSs) are a ubiquitous and critical component of modern computing, and the result of decades of research and development in both academia and industry. Historically, DBMSs were among the earliest multi-user server systems to be developed, and thus pioneered many systems design techniques for scalability and reliability now in use in many other contexts. While many of the algorithms and abstractions used by a DBMS are textbook material, there has been relatively sparse coverage in the literature of the systems design issues that make a DBMS work. This paper presents an architectural discussion of DBMS design principles, including process models, parallel architecture, storage system design, transaction system implementation, query processor and optimizer architectures, and typical shared components and utilities. Successful commercial and open-source systems are used as points of reference, particularly when multiple alternative designs have been adopted by different groups

Performance analysis of distributed data base systems by Michael Stonebraker ( Book )
3 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this paper we briefly present the design of a distributed relational data base system. Then, we discuss experimental observations of the performance of that system executing both short and long commands. Conclusions are also drawn concerning metrics that distributed query processing heuristics should attempt to minimize. Lastly, we comment on architectures which appear viable for distributed data base applications

Database portals : a new application program interface by Michael Stonebraker ( Book )
3 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper describes the design and proposed implementation of a new application program interface to a database management system. Programs which browse through a database making ad-hoc updates are not well served by conventional embeddings of DBMS commands in programming languages. A new embedding is suggested which overcomes all deficiencies. This construct, called a portal, allows a program to request a collection Of tuples at once and supports novel concurrency control schemes
Implementation of rules in relational data base systems by Michael Stonebraker ( Book )
4 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper contains a proposed implementation of a rules system in a relational data base system. Such a rules system can provide data base services including integrity control, protection, alerters, triggers, and view processing. Moreover, it can be used for user specified rules. The proposed implementation makes efficient use of an abstract data type facility by introducing new data types which assist with rule specification and enforcement

An implementation of hypothetical relations by John Woodfill ( Book )
3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this paper we develop a different approach to implementing hypothetical relations than those previously proposed. Our design, which borrows ideas from tactics based on views and differential files, offers several advantages over other schemes. An actual implementation is described and performance statistics are presented
The design of the postgres rules system by Michael Stonebraker ( Book )
3 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper explains the rules subsystem that is being implemented in the POSTGRES DBMS. It is novel in several ways. First, it gives to users the capability of defining rules as well as data to a DBMS. Moreover, depending on the scope of each rule defined, optimization is handled differently. This leads to good performance both in the case there are many rules each of small scope and a few rules each of large scope. In addition, rules provide either a forward chaining control flow or a backward chaining one, and the system will choose the control mechanism that optimizes performance in the cases that is possible. Furthermore, priority rules can defined, thereby allowing a user to specify rules systems that have conflicts. This use of exceptions seems necessary in many applications. Lastly, our rule system can support an implementation of views, protection and integrity control, simply by applying the rules system in a particular way. Consequently, no special purpose code need to be included to handle these tasks. Keywords; Data bases; Data management
Database research : achievements and opportunities into the 21st century ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In May, 1995 an NSF workshop on the future of database management systems research was convened. This paper reports the conclusions of that meeting. Among the most important directions for future DBMS research recommended by the panel are: support for multimedia objects; managing distributed and loosely coupled information, as on the world-wide web; supporting new database applications such as data mining and warehousing; workflow and other complex transaction-management problems, and enhancing the ease-of-use of DBMS's for both users and system managers

Managing persistent objects in a multi-level store by Michael Stonebraker ( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper presents an architecture for a persistent object store in which multi-level storage is explicitly included. Traditionally. DBMSs have assumed that all accessible data resides on magnetic disk, and recently several researchers have begun to consider the possibility that significant amounts of data will occupy space m a main memory cache. We feel that object bases in which time critical objects reside in main memory, other objects are disk resident, and the remainder occupy tertiary memory. Moreover, it is possible that more than three levels will be present, and that some of these levels will be on remote hardware. This paper contains an architectural proposal addressing these needs along with a sketch of the required query optimizer
Using write protected data structures to improve software fault tolerance in highly available database management systems by Mark Sullivan ( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper describes a database management system (DBMS) modified to use hardware write protection to guard critical DBMS data structures against software errors. Guarding (write- protecting) DBMS data improves software reliability by providing quick detection of corrupted pointers and array bound overruns. Guarding will be especially helpful in an extensible DBMS since it limits the power of extension code to corrupt unrelated parts of the system. Read-write data structures can be guarded as long as correct software is able to temporarily uprotect the data structures during updates. The paper discusses teh effects of three different update models on performance, software complexity, and error protection. Measurement of a DBMS which uses guarding to protect its buffer pool show two to eleven percent performance degradation in a debit/credit benchmark
End-user interaction with clutter reduction techniques by Allison Woodruff ( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The cartographic Principle of Constant Information Density suggests that the amount of information in an interactive visualization should remain constant as the user pans and zooms. In previous work, we presented a system, VIDA (Visual Information Density Adjuster), which helps users manually construct applications in which overall display density remains constant. In the context of semantic zoom systems, this approach ensures uniformity in the z dimension, but does not extend naturally to ensuring uniformity in the x and y dimensions. In this paper, we present a new approach that automatically creates displays that are uniform in the x, y, and z dimensions. In the new system, users express constraints about visual representations that should appear in the display. The system applies these constraints to subdivisions of the display such that each subdivision meets a target density value. We have implemented our technique in the DataSplash/VIDA database visualization environment. We describe our algorithm, implementation, and the advantages and disadvantages of our approach."
