    Subquery Allocations in Distributed Databases Using Genetic Algorithms

    Minimization of query execution time is an important performance objective in distributed databases design. While total time is to be minimized for On Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) type queries, response time has to be minimized in Decision Support type queries. Thus different allocations of subqueries to sites and their execution...
