An associative memory for a relational database management system, with content addressing capability, is studied and analyzed. The system utilizes one level of indexing and the database is clustered. The logic-per-track approach is used for parallel processing of the data in a cylinder. The attributes and the tuples are allowed to have an arbitrary length and no encoding algorithm is used. The performance of the system is analyzed and it is demonstrated to have superior performance in comparison to software-based systems. The cost effectiveness of the system is also shown.
