Many database applications today are characterised by the requirement of timely access to data. This requirement leads to an increasing trend towards adapting real-time scheduling techniques to the management of data access requests. In this paper, we summarise and stimulate developments of time-cognisant scheduling techniques for database management systems. In particular, we review briefly the methods used in mapping timing constraints of transactions into priorities, and the priority-based protocols used for concurrency control. We also suggest useful directions for future research.
