CPW is an acronym for Commercial Processing Workload. It is a measure of computers to compare computer system models in terms of how efficiently each system processes a typical workload of commercial applications involving frequent database access. The CPW also represents a test of database commitment control, concurrent data access by many users, and a range of updating complexity.
