Abstract: Most medium-sized enterprises run their databases on inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware; still, they need quick answers to complex queries, like ad-hoc Decision Support System (DSS) ones. Thus, it is important that the chosen database system and its tuning be optimal for the specific database size and design. Such choice can be made in-house, based on tests with academic database benchmarks. This paper focuses on the TPC-H database benchmark that aims at measuring the performance of ad-hoc DSS queries. Since official TPC-H results feature large databases and run on high-end hardware, we attempt to assess whether the test is meaningfully downscalable and can be performed on off-the-shelf hardware. We present the benchmark and the steps that a non-expert must take to run the tests. In addition, we report our own benchmark tests, comparing an open-source and a commercial database server running on off-the-shelf hardware when varying parameters that affect the performance of DSS queries.
