Adaptive Logging for Mobile Device
Nowadays, due to the increased user requirements of the fast and reliable data management operation for mobile applications, major device vendors use embedded DBMS for their mobile devices such as MP3 players, mobile phones, digital cameras and PDAs. However, database logging is the major bottleneck against the fast response time. There has been a lot of work minimizing logging overhead but no single recovery method provides the best performance to a variety of database workloads. In this paper, the authors present a novel recovery method called adaptive logging which can switch the logging method from ARIES to shadow paging adaptively at a page level according to the update state of each page on run time.
