|Abstract: A growing number of storage systems have started
to support the SPARQL query language for RDF and the
SPARQL Protocol for RDF. As SPARQL is more and more
accepted by community, there is a growing need for
benchmarks that will compare these systems. In this paper
we present the setup and configuration of the GeoKnow
Benchmarking laboratory and benchmarking methodology.
This system is used in the FP7 project Geoknow to
summarize the performance evaluation of the geospatial
tools used in the project. The benchmark is applicable to
DBMS dealing with relational data, and RDF, as well.
Comparison results are presented running the benchmark
against Virtuoso (SPARQL & SQL) and PostGIS, both
hosting OSM data.|
