Object-relational DBMSs : the next great wave by Michael Stonebraker( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Discover why object-relational technology is ideal for supporting a broad spectrum of data types and application areas, from financial services to multimedia data. In this completely revised and updated edition, database experts Michael Stonebraker and Paul Brown explore the object-relational paradigm and examine the most recent developments in the field." "Specially written for database application programmers, database analysts, and IT managers, this book includes detailed information on how to classify DBMS applications, where object-relational DBMSs fit in the database world, and what mechanisms are required to support such an engine."--Jacket
The Ingres papers : anatomy of a relational database system by M Stonebraker( Book )

14 editions published between 1975 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report summarizes the progress made during a three year period on research in data base management. The primary effort has been the design development of a major data base management system of the relational type, INGRES. In addition, a number of new directions, such as distributed data bases and data base machines were initiated. (Author)

Performance analysis of distributed data base systems by Michael Stonebraker( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 11 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
An implementation of hypothetical relations by John Woodfill( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 10 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 POSTGRES papers by M Stonebraker( Book )

Database portals : a new application program interface by Michael Stonebraker( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 9 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 )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 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
Database research : achievements and opportunities into the 21st century by Abraham Silberschatz( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 7 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
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

The design of the POSTGRES storage system by Michael Stonebraker( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents the design of the storage system for the POSTGRES data base system under construction at Berkeley. It is novel in several ways. First, the storage manager supports transaction management but does so without using a conventional write ahead log (WAL). In fact, there is no code to run at recovery time, and consequently recovery from crashes is essentially instantaneous. Second, the storage manager allows a user to optionally keep the entire past history of data base objects by closely integrating an archival storage system to which historical records are spooled. Lastly, the storage manager is consciously constructed as a collection of asynchronous processes. Hence, a large monolithic body of code is avoided and opportunities for parallelism can be exploited. The paper concludes with a analysis of the storage system which suggests that it is performance competitive with WAL systems in many situations
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
