The increasing popularity of the Web of Data is motivating the need to integrate semantic-web ontologies. Data exchange is one integration approach that aims to populate a target ontology using data that come from one or more source ontologies. Currently, there exist a variety of systems that are suitable to perform data exchange among these ontologies; unfortunately, they have uneven performance, which makes it appealing assessing and ranking them from an empirical point of view. In the bibliography, there exist a number of benchmarks, but they cannot be applied to this context because they are not suitable for testing semantic-web ontologies or they do not focus on data exchange problems. In this paper, we present MostoBM, a benchmark for testing data exchange systems in the context of such ontologies. It provides a catalogue of three real-world and seven synthetic data exchange patterns, which can be instantiated into a variety of scenarios using some parameters. These scenarios help to analyze how the performance of data exchange systems evolves as the exchanging ontologies are scaled in structured and/or data. Finally, we provide an evaluation methodology to compare data exchange systems side by side and to make informed and statistically sound decisions regarding: 1) which data exchange system performs better; and 2) how the performance of a system is influenced by the parameters of our benchmark.
