Abstract: To speed up on-line analytical processing, data warehousing systems materialise views derived from several operational databases. When the operational databases happen to change, the materialised views get stale. To enhance the freshness of the materialised views, we proposed a new concurrency control scheme, which enables a number of update transactions to execute concurrently with analytical transactions. When an update transaction attempts to modify the data that is using by any analytical transactions, this scheme immediately allows the update transaction to create a new transient version for the data. Due to this selective versioning, analytical transactions could continuously access fresh data.

Keywords: concurrency control; data warehouse; materialised view; selective 2-versioning; serialisability.
