Abstract

The development of a distributed database system requires effective solutions to many complex and interrelated design problems. The cost dependencies between query optimization and data allocation on distribuled systems are well recognized but little understood. We investigate these dependencies by proposing and analyzing an iterative heuristic which provides an integrated solution to the query optimization and data allocation problems. The optimization heuristic iterates between finding minimumcost query strategies and minimum cost data allocations until a local minimum for the combined problem is found. A search from convergence efficiently scans the optimization search space for lower cost solutions. Parametric studies within a simple query environment demonstrate near- optimal performance for the iterative method when minimizing total time and response cost of queries. The iterative method provides clear improvements over alternative solution methods. The paper concludes with the practical implications of this research and its future directions.
