OLTP

In contrast, OLTP transaction processing tends to operate orthogonally. OLTP systems do not scan multiple tables simultaneously, nor do they access large volumes of data. This makes their consumption of processing and I/O resources miniscule in comparison with decision support query processing. Because the database size determinant is factored from the equation, size is not a factor in the responsiveness of the system.
