SIGMOD Record - web edition / December 2000 Exciting stuff!
At the bottom of the page, New TPC Benchmarks for Decision Support and Web Commerce.
I made a shot across the bow on using the TPCH benchmark as a suite for testing compliance with the new SQL enhancements. Seemed to fly, so it's been the bulk of my work the last few days. Currently parsing the answer sets so they can be imported into a cursor for comparison with results. This may sound trivial, but the results sets are non delimited data dumps with one record spanning 3-4 rows. I've found lots of opensource and academic uses of TPCH, but no one seems to make available the complied version of DB_GEN or a normalized set of answers. ARGH!
