Our main test case for OLTP is DBT-2 which follows TPC-C in being perfectly scalable with no hot spots in the heap and limited hot spots in the indexes. As such it's a poor test of real world applications, where Benfold's Law holds true.

I assume this is a typo on Benford's Law: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benford's_law which notes there are far more ones in real-world data sets.

If there were a Benfold's Law, it would surely involve the number 5 instead.
