AbstractConcerns the design and performance of the telephone directory enquiry system that has been newly adopted in Hong Kong. This system maintains three million telephone records and supports over 40,000 enquiries per hour at the peak. In Hong Kong society, the uses of English and Chinese (in particular, Cantonese) has been blending in a thrust of exciting language culture, giving rise to a variety of telephone enquires that traditional B-tree or hashing-based telephone directory enquiry systems fail to handle. The efficiency and flexibility achieved by the new system stem from hosting all indexing data structures in the main memory; these data structures occupy about half a giga-byte and would have been considered too expensive to be placed in main memory in the past.
