TPC Benchmarks Charles Levine Microsoft [email protected] Western Institute of Computer Science Stanford, CA August 6, 1999 Outline Introduction History of TPC TPC-A/B Legacy TPC-C TPC-H/R TPC Futures Benchmarks: What and Why What is a benchmark?

Domain specific No single metric possible The more general the benchmark, the less useful it is for anything in particular. A benchmark is a distillation of the essential attributes of a workload Desirable attributes Relevant meaningful within the target domain Understandable Good metric(s) linear, orthogonal, monotonic Scaleable applicable to a broad spectrum of hardware/architecture Coverage does not oversimplify the typical environment Acceptance Vendors and Users embrace it Benefits and Liabilities

Good benchmarks Define the playing field Accelerate progress Engineers do a great job once objective is measureable and repeatable Set the performance agenda Measure release-to-release progress Set goals (e.g., 100,000 tpmC, < 10 $/tpmC) Something managers can understand (!) Benchmark abuse Benchmarketing Benchmark wars more $ on ads than development Benchmarks have a Lifetime

Good benchmarks drive industry and technology forward. At some point, all reasonable advances have been made. Benchmarks can become counter productive by encouraging artificial optimizations. So, even good benchmarks become obsolete over time. Outline Introduction History of TPC TPC-A Legacy TPC-C TPC-H/R TPC Futures What is the TPC?

TPC = Transaction Processing Performance Council Founded in Aug/88 by Omri Serlin and 8 vendors. Membership of 40-45 for last several years Everybody whos anybody in software & hardware De facto industry standards body for OLTP performance Administered by: Shanley Public Relations 650 N. Winchester Blvd, Suite 1 San Jose, CA 95128 ph: (408) 295-8894 fax: (408) 271-6648 email: [email protected] Most TPC specs, info, results are on the web page: http: Two Seminal Events Leading to TPC

SPEC (System Performance Evaluation Cooperative) SPEC ships code Unix centric CPU centric TPC ships specifications SPECMarks Ecumenical Database/System/TP centric Price/Performance The TPC and SPEC happily coexist

There is plenty of room for both Outline Introduction History of TPC TPC-A/B Legacy TPC-C TPC-H/R TPC Futures TPC-A Legacy First results in 1990: 38.2 tpsA, 29.2K$/tpsA (HP) Last results in 1994: 3700 tpsA, 4.8 K$/tpsA (DEC)

WOW! 100x on performance and 6x on price in five years!!! TPC cut its teeth on TPC-A/B; became functioning, representative body Learned a lot of lessons: If benchmark is not meaningful, it doesnt matter how many numbers or how easy to run (TPC-B). How to resolve ambiguities in spec How to police compliance Rules of engagement TPC-A Established OLTP Playing Field TPC-A criticized for being irrelevant, unrepresentative, misleading But, truth is that TPC-A drove performance, drove price/performance, and forced everyone to clean up their

products to be competitive. Trend forced industry toward one price/performance, regardless of size. Became means to achieve legitimacy in OLTP for some. Outline Introduction History of TPC TPC-A/B Legacy TPC-C TPC-D TPC Futures TPC-C Overview

Moderately complex OLTP The result of 2+ years of development by the TPC Application models a wholesale supplier managing orders. Order-entry provides a conceptual model for the benchmark; underlying components are typical of any OLTP system. Workload consists of five transaction types. Users and database scale linearly with throughput. Spec defines full-screen end-user interface. Metrics are new-order txn rate (tpmC) and price/performance ($/tpmC) Specification was approved July 23, 1992. TPC-Cs Five Transactions OLTP transactions:

New-order: enter a new order from a customer Payment: update customer balance to reflect a payment Delivery: deliver orders (done as a batch transaction) Order-status: retrieve status of customers most recent order Stock-level: monitor warehouse inventory Transactions operate against a database of nine tables. Transactions do update, insert, delete, and abort; primary and secondary key access. Response time requirement: 90% of each type of transaction must have a response time 5 seconds, except stock-level which is 20 seconds.

10 0 0 Relative Frequency of Access to This Record 0.09 ACID Tests TPC-C requires transactions be ACID. Tests included to demonstrate ACID properties met. Atomicity Consistency Isolation

Verify that all changes within a transaction commit or abort. ANSI Repeatable reads for all but Stock-Level transactions. Committed reads for Stock-Level. Durability Must demonstrate recovery from Loss of power Loss of memory Loss of media (e.g., disk crash) Transparency TPC-C requires that all data partitioning be fully transparent to the application code. (See TPC-C Clause 1.6) Both horizontal and vertical partitioning is allowed All partitioning must be hidden from the application Most DBMSs do this today for single-node horizontal partitioning. Much harder: multiple-node transparency.

For example, in a two-node cluster: Any DML operation must be able to operate against the entire database, regardless of physical location. Warehouses: Node A Node B select * from warehouse where W_ID = 150 select * from warehouse where W_ID = 77 1-100 100-200 Transparency (cont.) How does transparency affect TPC-C?

Payment txn: 15% of Customer table records are non-local to the home warehouse. New-order txn: 1% of Stock table records are non-local to the home warehouse. In a distributed cluster, the cross warehouse traffic causes cross node traffic and either 2 phase commit, distributed lock management, or both. For example, with distributed txns: Number of nodes 1 2 3 n10.9 % Network Txns 0 5.5 7.3 TPC-C Rules of Thumb

1.2 tpmC per User/terminal (maximum) 10 terminals per warehouse (fixed) 65-70 MB/tpmC priced disk capacity (minimum) ~ 0.5 physical IOs/sec/tpmC (typical) 100-700 KB main memory/tpmC (how much $ do you have?) So use rules of thumb to size 5000 tpmC system: How many terminals? How many warehouses? How much memory? How much disk capacity? How many spindles? 4170 = 5000 / 1.2 417 = 4170 / 10 1.5 - 3.5 GB 325 GB = 5000 * 65 Depends on MB capacity vs. physical IO.

Capacity: 325 / 18 = 18 or 325 / 9 = 36 spindles IO: 5000*.5 / 18 = 138 IO/sec IO: 5000*.5 / 36 = 69 IO/sec TOO HOT!

Database size is determined from fixed Scale Factors (SF): Database is generated by DBGEN 1, 10, 30, 100, 300, 1000, 3000, 10000 (note that 3 is missing, not a typo) These correspond to the nominal database size in GB. (i.e., SF 10 is approx. 10 GB, not including indexes and temp tables.) Indices and temporary tables can significantly increase the total disk capacity. (3-5x is typical) DBGEN is a C program which is part of the TPC-H/R specs Use of DBGEN is strongly recommended. TPC-H/R database contents must be exact. Database Load time must be reported

Includes time to create indexes and update statistics. Not included in primary metrics. How are TPC-H and TPC-R Different? Partitioning Indexes TPC-H: only on primary keys, foreign keys, and date columns; only using simple key breaks TPC-R: unrestricted for horizontal partitioning Vertical partitioning is not allowed TPC-H: only on primary keys, foreign keys, and date columns; cannot span multiple tables TPC-R: unrestricted

Auxiliary Structures What? materialized views, summary tables, join indexes TPC-H: not allowed TPC-R: allowed TPC-H/R Query Set 22 queries written in SQL92 to implement business questions. Queries are pseudo ad hoc: Substitution parameters are replaced with constants by QGEN QGEN replaces substitution parameters with random values No host variables No static SQL Queries cannot be modified -- SQL as written

TPC-W (Web) is a transactional web benchmark. TPC-W models a controlled Internet Commerce environment that simulates the activities of a business oriented web server. The application portrayed by the benchmark is a Retail Store on the Internet with a customer browse-and-order scenario. TPC-W measures how fast an E-commerce system completes various E-commerce-type transactions TPC-W Characteristics TPC-W features: The simultaneous execution of multiple transaction types that span a breadth of complexity. On-line transaction execution modes. Databases consisting of many tables with a wide variety of sizes, attributes, and relationship.

Multiple on-line browser sessions. Secure browser interaction for confidential data. On-line secure payment authorization to an external server. Consistent web object update. Transaction integrity (ACID properties). Contention on data access and update. 24x7 operations requirement. Three year total cost of ownership pricing model. TPC-W Metrics There are three workloads in the benchmark, representing different customer environments. Primarily shopping (WIPS). Representing typical browsing, searching and ordering activities of on-line shopping. Browsing (WIPSB). Representing browsing activities with dynamic web page generation and searching activities. Web-based Ordering (WIPSO). Representing intranet and business to business secure web activities.

Primary metrics are: WIPS rate (WIPS), price/performance ($/WIPS), and the availability date of the priced configuration.
