Although much work in the area of Active Database Management Systems (ADBMSs) has been done, there have been only a few attempts to evaluate the performance of these systems, and it is not yet clear how the performance of an active DBMS can be evaluated systematically. In this thesis, we describe the OBJECTIVE Benchmark for object-oriented ADBMSs, and present experimental results from its implementation in an active database system prototype. OBJECTIVE can be used to identify performance bottlenecks and active functionalities of an ADBMS, and compare the performance of multiple ADBMSs. The philosophy of OBJECTIVE is to isolate components providing active functionalities, and concentrate only on the performance of these components while attempting to minimize the effects of other factors.
