Performance / Price Sort [article]

Jim Gray, Joshua Coates, Chris Nyberg
1998 arXiv   pre-print
NTsort is an external sort on WindowsNT 5.0. It has minimal functionality but excellent price performance. In particular, running on mail-order hardware it can sort 1.5 GB for a penny. For commercially available sorts, Postman Sort from Robert Ramey Software Development has elapsed time performance comparable to NTsort, while using less processor time. It can sort 1.27 GB for a penny (12.7 million records.) These sorts set new price-performance records. This paper documents this and proposes
more » ... t the PennySort benchmark be revised to Performance/Price sort: a simple GB/ sort metric based on a two-pass external sort.
