Benchmarks define techniques which can be followed to determine the effectiveness of a given software or hardware design. Ever since the development of the Wisconsin Benchmark and subsequent transaction-processing (TPC) benchmarks, there has been a concensus and general acceptance of these performance comparison tools. However, these benchmarks are not sufficient to determine the performance of mobile-based applications. For example, these traditional benchmarks ignore some of the important wireless-mobile features such as location-dependent queries and movement of the mobile host. In this chapter we examine the issues needed for the development of such a mobile query benchmark. In particular, we focus on queries which involve location-dependent features. We first examine the unique aspects of this mobile architecture which impact any benchmark design, and then propose a benchmark suitable for it.
