Object-relational database systems are now being deployed for real use by customers. Researchers and industry users have begun to explore the performance issues that these systems raise. In this paper, we examine some of those performance issues, and evaluate them for object-relational systems in general and for INFORMIX-Universal Server in particular. We describe object-relational query processing techniques and make some predictions about how they will evolve over the next several years.
