Hypermodel/nonstandard DBMS benchmark

Hypermodel/nonstandard DBMS benchmark

Post by Andreas Schue » Sat, 29 Feb 1992 01:36:29

Two years ago, I came across the hypermodel benchmark of Arne Berre,
T. Lougenia Anderson and Moira Mallison for non-standard database
management systems. In my opinion it's the best benchmark I have
heard of for CAD-, hypertext- and software-engineering-DBMS. But up
to now I have only found two two year old articles containing descriptions
of hypermodel benchmark evaluations for

        GemStone (Servio Logic),
        Vbase 1.0 (Ontologic),
        PCTE V10.4 (Emeraude).

I'm looking for

        * other proposals of non-standard database system benchmarks
          (with exception of the Cattell-benchmark)
        * any new hypermodel benchmark results for the above mentioned
          systems or any other kind of (non-standard/object-oriented) DBMS.

Thank you very much for any responses to this question,

Unfortunately, I know of no further hypermodel benchmark results that have
been performed and made available. We are trying to get the Hypermodel
benchmark coded up as a measure of our object store prototype, but it has many
tests, etc., and takes considerable effort to build. As for additional
benchmarks, I know of none except the distributed (client-server) benchmark
presented at the 1990 VLDB conference (citation below). Pelase post (or email
me) if you find anything more ....                              Eliot Moss

1. Looking for HyperModel benchmark

I am looking for a copy of the source for the HyperModel Benchmark.
The paper I have (reference below) states that the source (presumeably
in Smalltalk) is available from the third author (Moira Mallison) but
does not give any means of contact (other than partial snail-mail

If you have a copy, know where one is or know where (or are) one of
the authors, please give me a jingle by replying to this message.  The
authors affiliations at the time were: Servio, Center for Industrial
Research in Oslo, Tektronix, Portland State U and Mentor Graphics

Please reply by email as I don't regularly read all the groups to
which this is posted.  Anyone interested in this same info can mail me
direct or I will post if there is alot of interest.
