Figure 1 shows the sample of distributed data and distributed processing. In Personal Computer PC clustering system, the distributed data environment approach is used where the information will be decomposed into smaller pieces and then distributes them to be stored on several data storage nodes in the cluster computer systems.

The MDSA allocates available servers to cluster computers and search for the best cluster that caters to a query. There were eight experiments performed using MDSA and were compared to the sequential and random search method, which include controlled CPU utilization and random CPU utilization in terms of access time, single query and multiple queries. Experimental results showed that with MDSA, there is a reduction of data response time under varying number of nodes, ranging from 1 to 8 clustered servers.

Based on the network, the school resources for information. In short, the digital campus is the mature and advanced information technology as a tool, the activities of the traditional campus re integration, efficient new forms to realize modern institutions of higher education teaching, learning, management and other functions [5].

The design and implementation of data exchange based on XML. While Room Base are composed Automatic, without specify from the server. Signature based is one of the common techniques that are used to detect malware attack. The problem of the signature based is about the management of large database that has a new signature, in this paper we will create a new method to classify and fast retrieve malware of database, the size of database increase database is dependent on the number of signatures that are based on malware file , to solve classify database by using the concept of room based, we use this concept " room based " to manage the database.

Each room based that has content Prohibition privileges of signature based on malware files, or pattern of collections of signature based of malware files. Transactional Isolation. Nov Seppo Sippu Eljas Soisalon-Soininen. The latching protocol applied when accessing pages in the physical database maintains the integrity of the physical database during transaction processing, so that, for example, a B-tree index structure is kept structurally consistent and balanced.

When the physical database is consistent, the logical database consisting of the tuples in the data pages is action consistent , meaning that the logical database is the result of a sequence of completely executed logical database actions.

B-Tree Structure Modifications. A B-tree structure modification is an update operation that changes the tree structure of the B-tree, so that at least one index record a parent-to-child link is inserted, deleted, or updated. The structure modifications are encompassed by the following five types of primitive modifications: Each of these primitive modifications modifies three B-tree pages, namely, a parent page and two child pages.

Transaction Rollback and Restart Recovery. During normal processing, total or partial rollbacks occur when transactions themselves request such actions. In the event of a system crash or startup , restart recovery is performed before normal transaction processing can be resumed. This includes restoring the database state that existed at the time of the crash or shutdown from the disk version of the database and from the log records saved on the log disk, followed by the abort and rollback of all forward-rolling transactions and running the rollback of all backward-rolling transactions intocompletion.

Wireless GINI: Ahmed Youssef. The platform also creates mechanisms to readily integrate physical wireless devices into a deployed network. The platform supports a diverse combination of network elements that are all integrated into one custom Internet.

The platform seamlessly integrates process-emulated components running on the user machine, wireless mesh overlays deployed on the wireless platform, and generic wireless devices connected to the user's custom network. Wireless GINI provides a user-friendly interface that makes the physical setup process completely transparent to the user.

A centralized server is used to provide this transparency, handle user requests, and automatically provision the shared physical infrastructure. Moreover, we evaluate the performance of the platform and suggest several educational experiments that can be conducted on this new platform.

A detailed survey of the existing toolkits and platforms and a comparison with Wireless GINI are also provided. Lecture 4 Biomedical Databases: Acquisition, Storage, Information Retrieval, and Use.

Intuitionistic fuzzy databases are used to handle imprecise and uncertain data as they represent the membership, nonmembership, and hesitancy associated with a certain element in a set. This paper presents the Intuitionistic Fuzzy Fourth Normal Form to decompose the multivalued dependent data.

A technique to determine Intuitionistic Fuzzy multivalued dependencies by working on the closure of dependencies has been proposed. We derive the closure by obtaining all the logically implied dependencies by a set of Intuitionistic Fuzzy multivalued dependencies, i. A complete set of inference rules for the Intuitionistic Fuzzy multivalued dependencies has been given along with the derivation of each rule. These rules help us to compute the dependency closure and we further use the same for defining the Intuitionistic Fuzzy Fourth Normal Form.

To the development of mathematical models of the complex objects with deviated arguments In Ukrainian. The statement and the methods for solution of the mathematical modeling and simulation problems for the complex systems with deviated arguments are discussed. Jun Huang Shunxiang Wu.

NTFS has become the main file system of Windows. Using the engine, we can locate files or folders by name in all NTFS disks in a second.

In addition, with the function of fast file location and the important MFT information stored in USN journal, the engine can apply to fast electronic document destruction. This research not only can be of great use to daily computer application, but also has significant value in computer privacy protection. Moreover, larger population studies rarely have the infrastructure in place to collect health signals from components in operation, which is critical information for detailed failure analysis.

It presents the data collected from detailed observations of a large disk drive population in production Internet services deployment. Despite this high correlation conclude that models based on SMART parameters alone are unlikely to be useful for predicting individual drive failures. Surprisingly, it found that temperature and activity levels were much less correlated with Physical Disk PD failures.

B-Tree Traversals. Because of its balance conditions that must be maintained under all circumstances, the B-tree is a highly dynamic structure in which records are often moved from one page to another in structure modifications such as page splits caused by insertions and page merges caused by deletions. In a transaction-processing environment based on fine-grained concurrency control, this means that a data page can hold uncommitted updates by several transactions at the same time and an updated tuple can migrate from a page to another while the updating transaction is still active.

Supporting ontology adaptation and versioning based on a graph of relevance. Najla Sassi Wassim Jaziri. Ontologies recently have become a topic of interest in computer science since they are seen as a semantic support to explicit and enrich data-models as well as to ensure interoperability of data.

Moreover, supporting ontology adaptation becomes essential and extremely important, mainly when using ontologies in changing environments. An important issue when dealing with ontology adaptation is the management of several versions.

Ontology versioning is a complex and multifaceted problem as it should take into account change management, versions storage and access, consistency issues, etc. The purpose of this paper is to propose an approach and tool for ontology adaptation and versioning.

The ontology versions are ordered in a graph according to their relevance. The relevance is computed based on four criteria: The techniques to carry out the versioning process are implemented in the Consistology tool, which has been developed to assist users in expressing adaptation requirements and managing ontology versions.

Daniel Svensson Razmus Svenningson. Dec Adityo Prabowo. The information has become one of the most important parts for an institution today, including Universitas Atma Jaya Makassar. One of the information is academic, so it needs fast processing to get that information.

The problems that arise are difference of language between the user who need information and database language which storage data of academic. So we need an interpreter to bridge the difference of language. In this research, the writer uses Natural Language Processing as the solution from that problem and use Parser Noise-Disposal. Min Song Li. Based on the analysis of web database realize technique,the paper researches the design of the web database system by JSP.

Dataset used in "Beyond Tasks and Gateways: Sep Concurrency Control by Versioning. All the concepts related to transactional isolation and concurrency control discussed in the previous chapters pertain to a single-version database model in which for each data item identified by a unique key in the logical database, only a single version, namely, the most recent or the current version , of the data item is available at any time.

When a transaction is permitted, at the specified isolation level, to read or update a data item, the database management system always provides the transaction with the current version of the data item. Distributed Transactions. In the preceding chapters, we have considered transaction processing in a centralized database environment: However, a transaction may need access to data distributed across several databases governed by a single organization.

This gives rise to the concept of a distributed transaction , that is, a transaction that contains actions on several intraorganization databases connected via a computer network. Online Index Construction and Maintenance. In the preceding chapters, we have assumed that tuples in a relation are accessed via a sparse B-tree index on the primary key of the relation.

In this chapter we extend our database and transaction model with read, delete, and update actions based on ranges of non-primary-key attributes. To accelerate these actions, secondary indexes must be constructed.

A secondary index, as considered here, is a dense B-tree whose leaf pages contain index records that point to the tuples stored in leaf pages of the sparse primary B-tree index of the relation. In this paper, we explore the problem of relational database design debt and define the problem.

We develop a taxonomy, which classifies various types of debts that can relate to conceptual, logical and physical design of a database. We define the concept of Database Design Debt, discuss their origin, causes and preventive mechanisms. We draw on MediaWiki case study and examine its database schema evolution to support our work.

An improved algorithm for database concurrency control. Concurrency is an effective solution for some of the database problems. Concurrency can be considered a positive solution for this problem, if it is applied under some constraints.

Our proposal is based on the reduction of locking level of the data to the smallest restricted point. Also, it is proposed to eliminate deadlock problem of the locking algorithms via forcing the waiting transaction to pass into the rollback or the commit phase. Our proposed algorithm improves the performance of the database and the transactions. Research Proposal. Feb Data model is a vital component in developing information system. When creating a data model, we need to ensure all the relevant information in business process covers on it.

One of the crucial activity in software engineering for making a data model for an information system is data modeling. Entity Relationship Diagram ERD is a common method to analysing and modeling data and it can generate a data model which describing how entities relate to one another. When developers use ERD method, they need to have data modeling skills such as relational concept and normalization concept. FCO-IM is a conceptual model of data modeling based on natural language. At the end, the author tried to provide a knowledge how to use FCO-IM in order to give another alternative for creating a model data.

Therefore, the result of FCO-IM method is a relational scheme which satisfies the rule of normalization. May XML has evolved from a document markup language to a data model commonly and widely used for storing, exchanging and sharing hierarchically semi structured data. Simultaneously relational model is still a production standard for storing and querying data. Since there are on the market so many advanced and mature, relational— and sql—based tools, systems and solutions just loading xml documents into relational model for instance as BLOBs would be the easiest way for storing and then processing XML data.

Unfortunately, in such a way, hierarchical and semi structured data becomes flat and unstructured.

That is why so many effort is made to provide efficient models and tools for storing and processing XML data and such solutions as XPath or XQuery have been proposed and become a standard in this field. It results however in developing heterogenous and not unified data storing and processing standards, models and tools.

It is similar to well-known object-relational impedance mismatch. There are of course tools responsible for mapping between XML and relational model on the market. In this paper the concept of transformation of XML data into quasi—relational model is proposed.

The general assumption of this transformation is making it possible to process XML document with the use of SQL-like language without making manual transformation and with preserving hierarchical structure of XML data.

Seungyong Cheon Youjip Won. While Write-Ahead-Logging reduces the number of fdatasync call and write volume, JOJ and database journaling overhead is still remained. MAW mode completely eliminated database journaling and keeps database consistency from unexpected system failure.

MAW mode only writes the actually updated database pages, thereby generates smaller write volume.

Apr Utilization of technology in education is very important, especially at the University of Technology in Yogyakarta, which is one of the private universities in Yogyakarta. One of the university objectives is utilizing the maximum potential of technology to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of learning and dissemination of science and technology. One of the factors that can improve academic services is scheduling lectures.

Making a schedule of lectures is not an activity that is easy to do, because scheduling involves not only subjects and times, but also lecturers and rooms. College scheduling systems currently running is less effective, because it requires a long time, and often clashes at student schedules.

The user interface which is developed in scheduling system uses click and drag. This system is easy to implement and do as well as minimizing conflicting class schedules. This research was conducted to design and develop herbs database system in order to build the information's network of herbs in Uttaradit Province.

Based on system development and propagation of herbs information in Uttaradit Province it was found that information database system was able to support production activity of persons related in supply chain of herbs business in Uttaradit Province in the form of clusters for sharing raw materials divided into 2 clusters including: Cluster between herbs farmers and producers or processor, i.

Cluster between farmers and Thai traditional medicine group. The results of this research showed that both clusters were assembled and consisted of 15 farmers, 3 herbal drugstore entrepreneurs, 20 physicians of Thai traditional medicine, 4 academics of hospitals, and 5 herbs processing factories.

Whereas, Jintana Herbs factory that was one of those herbs processing factories was able to reduce its cost of raw materials by In addition, farmers were able to increase their sales volume of herbs by In overall, it could be seen that clusters established in Uttaradit Province started to develop their businesses as well as improve their abilities and potential on herbs market competition in Uttaradit Province increasingly.

Consideration of validity of concurrency control program generated in genetic programming. Jun Fuma Kizu. Advanced Locking Protocols. The locking protocols presented thus far assume that the lockable units of the database are single tuples.

Database System Architecture Introduction Database System Architecture Distributed Databases Parallel Databases VII. Other Topics Introduction Application Development and Administration Advanced Querying and Information Retrieval Advanced Data Types and New Applications Advanced Transaction Processing iv 5. In this text, we present the fundamental concepts of database manage- ment.

These concepts include aspects of database design, database languages, and database-system implementation. We assume only a familiarity with basic data structures, computer organization, and a high-level programming language such as Java, C, or Pascal.

We present con- cepts as intuitive descriptions, many of which are based on our running example of a bank enterprise. Important theoretical results are covered, but formal proofs are omitted. The fundamental concepts and algorithms covered in the book are often based on those used in existing commercial or experimental database systems. Our aim is to present these concepts and algorithms in a general setting that is not tied to one particular database system.

Several new chapters have been added to cover new technologies. We shall describe the changes in detail shortly. Chapter 1 provides a general overview of the nature and purpose of database systems. We explain how the concept of a database system has developed, what the common features of database systems are, what a database system does for the user, and how a database system inter- faces with operating systems.

We also introduce an example database applica- tion: This example is used as a running example throughout the book. This chapter is motiva- tional, historical, and explanatory in nature. Chapter 2 presents the entity-relationship model. This model provides a high-level view of the issues in database design, and of the problems that we encounter in capturing the semantics of realistic applications within the constraints of a data model. Chapter 3 focuses on the relational data model, covering the relevant relational algebra and relational calculus.

Chapter 5 covers two other relational languages, QBE and Datalog. These two chapters describe data manipulation: Algorithms and design issues are deferred to later chapters. Thus, these chapters are suit- able for introductory courses or those individuals who want to learn the basics of database systems, without getting into the details of the internal algorithms and structure. Chapter 6 presents constraints from the standpoint of database integrity and security; Chapter 7 shows how constraints can be used in the design of a relational database.

Referential integrity; mechanisms for integrity mainte- nance, such as triggers and assertions; and authorization mechanisms are pre- sented in Chapter 6. The theme of this chapter is the protection of the database from accidental and intentional damage. Chapter 7 introduces the theory of relational database design. The theory of functional dependencies and normalization is covered, with emphasis on the motivation and intuitive understanding of each normal form.

The overall process of database design is also described in detail. Chapter 8 covers object-oriented databases. It introduces the concepts of object-oriented pro- gramming, and shows how these concepts form the basis for a data model.

No prior knowledge of object-oriented languages is assumed. Chapter 9 cov- ers object-relational databases, and shows how the SQL: The chapter also describes query languages for XML. Chap- ters 13 and 14 address query-evaluation algorithms, and query optimization based on equivalence-preserving query transformations.

These chapters provide an understanding of the internals of the storage and retrieval components of a database.

Chapter 15 focuses on the fundamentals of a transaction-processing system, including transaction atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability, as well as the notion of serial- izability. Chapter 16 focuses on concurrency control and presents several techniques for ensuring serializability, including locking, timestamping, and optimistic validation techniques. The chapter also covers deadlock issues.

Chapter 17 covers the primary techniques for ensuring correct transaction execution de- spite system crashes and disk failures. These techniques include logs, shadow pages, checkpoints, and database dumps. We discuss centralized systems, client — server systems, parallel and distributed architectures, and network types in this chapter.

Chapter 19 covers distributed database systems, revis- iting the issues of database design, transaction management, and query eval- uation and optimization, in the context of distributed databases. The chap- ter also covers issues of system availability during failures and describes the LDAP directory system. The chapter also describes parallel-system design.


Chapter 21 covers database appli- cation development and administration. Topics include database interfaces, particularly Web interfaces, performance tuning, performance benchmarks, standardization, and database issues in e-commerce.

Chapter 22 covers query- ing techniques, including decision support systems, and information retrieval. The chapter also describes information retrieval techniques for 8. Chapter 23 covers advanced data types and new applications, including temporal data, spatial and geographic data, multimedia data, and issues in the management of mobile and personal databases. Finally, Chapter 24 deals with advanced transaction processing.

These chapters outline unique features of each of these products, and describe their internal structure. They provide a wealth of in- teresting information about the respective products, and help you see how the various implementation techniques described in earlier parts are used in real systems. They also cover several interesting practical aspects in the design of real systems. Although most new database applications use either the relational model or the object-oriented model, the network and hierarchical data models are still in use.

Appendix C describes advanced relational database design, including the theory of multivalued dependencies, join dependencies, and the project-join and domain-key normal forms. This appendix, too, is available only online, on the Web page of the book.

The Fourth Edition The production of this fourth edition has been guided by the many comments and suggestions we received concerning the earlier editions, by our own observations while teaching at IIT Bombay, and by our analysis of the directions in which database technology is evolving. Each chapter now has a list of review terms, which can help you review key topics covered in the chapter. We have also added a tools section at the end of most chap- ters, which provide information on software tools related to the topic of the chapter.

We have also added new exercises, and updated references. We have improved our coverage of the entity- relationship E-R model. More examples have been added, and some changed, to give better intuition to the reader.

Coverage of Quel has been dropped from Chapter 5, since it is no longer in wide use. Chapter 6 now covers integrity constraints and security. Coverage of se- curity has been moved to Chapter 6 from its third-edition position of Chap- ter Chapter 6 also covers triggers.

Chapter 7 covers relational-database design and normal forms. Discussion of functional dependencies has been moved into Chapter 7 from its third-edition position of Chapter 6.

Object-relational coverage in Chapter 9 has been updated, and in particular the SQL: Chapter 10, covering XML, is a new chapter in the fourth edition. Many characteristics of disk drives and other storage mecha- nisms have changed greatly in the past few years, and our coverage has been correspondingly updated. Coverage of data dictionaries catalogs has been extended. Chapter 12, on indexing, now includes coverage of bitmap indices; this chapter was Chapter 11 in the third edition.

Our treatment of query processing has been reorganized, with the earlier chapter Chapter 12 in the third edition split into two chapters, one on query processing Chapter 13 and another on query optimization Chapter All details regarding cost estimation and query optimization have been moved Chapter 14 now has pseudocode for optimization algorithms, and new sections on opti- mization of nested subqueries and on materialized views.

Chapter 15, which provides an introduction to trans- actions, has been updated; this chapter was numbered Chapter 13 in the third edition. Tests for view serializability have been dropped. Chapter 16, on concurrency control, includes a new section on implemen- tation of lock managers, and a section on weak levels of consistency, which was in Chapter 20 of the third edition.

Concurrency control of index structures has been expanded, providing details of the crabbing protocol, which is a sim- pler alternative to the B-link protocol, and next-key locking to avoid the phan- tom problem. As in the third edition, instructors can choose between just introducing transaction-processing concepts by covering only Chapter 15 , or offering de- tailed coverage based on Chapters 15 through Chapter 18, which provides an overview of database system architectures, has been updated to cover current technology; this was Chapter 16 in the third edition.

Database System Concepts, 4th Edition.

While the cov- erage of parallel database query processing techniques in Chapter 20 which was Chapter 16 in the third edition is mainly of interest to those who wish to learn about database internals, distributed databases, now covered in Chapter 19, is a topic that is more fundamental; it is one that anyone dealing with databases should be familiar with.

Coverage of three-phase commit protocol has been ab- breviated, as has distributed detection of global deadlocks, since neither is used much in practice. Coverage of query processing issues in heterogeneous databases has been moved up from Chapter 20 of the third edition.

There is a new section on directory systems, in particular LDAP, since these are quite widely used as a mechanism for making information available in a distributed setting. The description of how to build Web interfaces to databases, including servlets and other mechanisms for server-side scripting, is new. The section on performance tuning, which was earlier in Chapter 19, has new material on the famous 5-minute rule and the 1-minute rule, as well as some new examples.

Coverage of materialized view selection is also new. Coverage of benchmarks and standards has been updated. There is a new sec- tion on e-commerce, focusing on database issues in e-commerce, and a new section on dealing with legacy systems. Coverage of data warehousing and data mining has also been ex- tended greatly. Earlier versions of this ma- terial were in Chapter 21 of the third edition. Chapter 23, which covers advanced data types and new applications, has material on temporal data, spatial data, multimedia data, and mobile data- bases.

This material is an updated version of material that was in Chapter 21 of the third edition. These sections may be omitted if so desired, without a loss of continuity. It is possible to design courses by using various subsets of the chapters. We outline some of the possibilities here: Alternatively, they could constitute the foundation of an advanced course in object databases.

You might choose to use Chapters 15 and 18, while omitting Chapters 16, 17, 19, and 20, if you defer these latter chapters to an advanced course. Model course syllabi, based on the text, can be found on the Web home page of the book see the following section.

Database systems are designed to manage large bodies of information. In addition, the database system must ensure the safety of the information stored, despite system crashes or attempts at unauthorized access.

If data are to be shared among several users, the system must avoid possible anomalous results. Because information is so important in most organizations, computer scientists have developed a large body of concepts and techniques for managing data. These concepts and technique form the focus of this book. Here are some representative applications: For customer information, accounts, and loans, and banking transac- tions. For reservations and schedule information. For student information, course registrations, and grades.

For downloads on credit cards and generation of month- ly statements. For keeping records of calls made, generating monthly bills, maintaining balances on prepaid calling cards, and storing information about the communication networks. For customer, product, and download information.

As the list illustrates, databases form an essential part of almost all enterprises today. Over the course of the last four decades of the twentieth century, use of databases grew in all enterprises. In the early days, very few people interacted directly with database systems, although without realizing it they interacted with databases in- directly — through printed reports such as credit card statements, or through agents such as bank tellers and airline reservation agents.

Then automated teller machines came along and let users interact directly with databases. The internet revolution of the late s sharply increased direct user access to databases. Organizations converted many of their phone interfaces to databases into Web interfaces, and made a variety of services and information available online.

For instance, when you access an online bookstore and browse a book or music collec- tion, you are accessing data stored in a database. When you enter an order online, your order is stored in a database. When you access a Web site, information about you may be retrieved from a database, to select which advertisements should be shown to you.

Furthermore, data about your Web accesses may be stored in a database. New application programs are added to the system as the need arises. For exam- ple, suppose that the savings bank decides to offer checking accounts. Before database management systems DBMSs came along, organizations usu- ally stored information in such systems.

This redundancy leads to higher storage and access cost. In addition, it may lead to data inconsis- tency; that is, the various copies of the same data may no longer agree. Because the designers of the original system did not anticipate this request, there is no application program on hand to meet it. There is, however, an ap- plication program to generate the list of all customers. Both alternatives are obviously unsatisfactory.

As expected, a program to generate such a list does not exist. More responsive data-retrieval systems are required for general use. The data values stored in the database must satisfy cer- tain types of consistency constraints. Developers enforce these constraints in the system by adding appropriate code in the various ap- plication programs.

A computer system, like any other mechanical or elec- trical device, is subject to failure. In many applications, it is crucial that, if a failure occurs, the data be restored to the consistent state that existed prior to the failure.Although most new database applications use either the relational model or the object-oriented model, the network and hierarchical data models are still in use. Prerna Vaishnav. Chapter 8 covers object-oriented databases. The relational model is at a lower level of abstraction than the E-R model.

The description of how to build Web interfaces to databases, including servlets and other mechanisms for server-side scripting, is new.

The schema of a ta- ble is an example of metadata. Zel Ilano , Freelancer at freelancer at freelancer Thought-provoking suggestions! As the list illustrates, databases form an essential part of almost all enterprises today.
