H-Store is an experimental main-memory, parallel database management system that is optimized for on-line transaction processing (OLTP) applications. It is a highly distributed, row-store-based relational database that runs on a cluster on shared-nothing, main memory executor nodes.
More information and documentation is available at: http://hstore.cs.brown.edu
H-Store is known to work on the following platforms. Please note that it will not compile on 32-bit systems.
- Ubuntu Linux 9.10+ (64-bit)
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 (64-bit)
- Mac OS X 10.6+ (64-bit)
- gcc +4.3
- openjdk +1.6 (1.7 is recommended)
- ant +1.7
- python +2.7
- openssh-server (for automatic deployment)
First build the entire distribution:
Next make the project jar file for the target benchmark. H-Store includes several benchmarks that are built-in and ready to execute. A project jar contains all the of stored procedures and statements for the target benchmark, as well as the cluster configuration for the database system.
export HSTORE_BENCHMARK=tm1 ant hstore-prepare -Dproject=$HSTORE_BENCHMARK
You can now execute the benchmark locally on your machine with two partitions
ant hstore-benchmark -Dproject=$HSTORE_BENCHMARK
