Atomic commit protocols are used where data integrity is more important than data availability. Two-Phase Commit (2PC) is a standard commit protocol for commercial database management systems. To reduce certain drawbacks in 2PC protocol people have suggested different variance of this protocol. Short-Commit protocol is developed with an objective to achieve low cost transaction commitment cost with non-blocking capability. In this paper, the authors have briefly explained short-commit protocol executing pattern. Experimental analysis and results are presented to support the claim that short-commit can work efficiently in extreme database environment.
