OLTP

Updated: 10/17/2017 by Computer Hope

Short for online transaction processing, OLTP describes software that facilitates transactions on the Internet. An OLTP application needs to handle the transaction requests of many users simultaneously, conduct the transactions immediately, and have a reliable backup mechanism in case of system failure. It is typically characterized by high throughput and priority read-write access to a massive database.
