Previous studies (Haritsa et al., 1990) have shown that optimistic concurrency control (OCC) generally performs better than lock-based protocols in disk-based real-time database systems (RTDBS). We compare the two concurrency control protocols in both disk-based and memory-resident multiprocessor RTDBS. Based on their performance characteristics, a new lock-based protocol, called two phase locking-lock write all (2PL-LW), is proposed. The results of our performance evaluation experiments show that different characteristics of the two environments indeed have great impact on the protocols' performance. We identify such system characteristics and show that our new lock-based protocols, 2PL-LW, is better than OCC in meeting transaction deadlines in both disk-based and memory-resident RTDBS
