A lot of Real-Time DataBase (RTDB) research has been done to process transactions in a timely fashion using fresh data reflecting the current real world status. However, most existing RTDB work is based on simulations. Due to the absence of a publicly available RTDB testbed, it is very hard to evaluate real-time data management techniques in a realistic environment. To address the problem, the authors design and develop an initial version of a RTDB testbed, called Chronos, atop an open source database.
