1. Load balance multiple small accesses to increase throughput
2. Parallelize large accesses to reduce response time.
This case is easiest to implement; will consider variable length records
Data dictionary (also called system catalog) stores metadata: that is, data about data, such as
The latter alternative is usually preferred
Relation-metadata = (relation-name, number-of-attributes, storage-organization, location)Attribute-metadata = (attribute-name, relation-name, domain-type, position, length)
User-metadata = (user-name, encrypted-password, group)
Index-metadata = (index-name, relation-name, index-type, index-attributes)
View-metadata = (view-name, definition)
