The authors outline the features of the transaction processing performance council (TPC) benchmark A and describe the implementation of the benchmark in a distributed transaction processing (TP) environment. TPC benchmark A simulates a TP environment and exercises key components of the system under test (SUT) using a simple, update-intensive transaction type. It is intended to simulate a class of TP application environments instead of the entire range of TP environments. Nevertheless, the single transaction type specified by the TPC benchmark A standard provides a simple, repeatable unit of work. An overview of this benchmark is provided in terms of the application environment, the transaction logic, terminal communication, implementation constraints, database design, benchmark metrics, transactions per second (TPS) and price per TPS
