The remedy for every computer or telecommunications problem or disagreement these days is to form a new standards body to address it, and so it is that the irritation caused by IBM’s use of its proprietary RAMP-C benchmark to measure performance of transaction processing systems has led to the creation of the Transaction Processing Performance Council, whose aim is to develop standard on-line transaction processing benchmarks (in computing terms, what is off-line transaction processing?) and to explore ways in which any performance claims made under the standards can be verified. The seven founders are Control Data, DEC, Pyramid Technology, Stratus Computer; Sybase; Tandem Computers; and Wang Laboratories. Omri Serlin’s Itom International Co consulting and research firm in Los Altos, will be administering the Council, which is reviewing a proposed new standard for the DebitCredit benchmark, co-authored by Serlin and Tom Sawyer, Codd & Date Consulting, San Jose.
