DrAxeman has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been looking for some sort of database workload simulator, but can't find one. I just want to be able to create a database with some data, and perform SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT, DELETE type funtions to show a CPU/RAM activity and disk I/O. If anyone knows of a free utility that may fit my needs, please point me to it.
Otherwise I'm going to try and develop something for myself. I'm going to be using an Oracle 10g database, and would like to use perl as the front-end.
Does anyone have any existing scripts that may help me out? Anything that will help cut back on the amount of work I have will help. In the end, I'll share the simulator for anyone who has similar needs.
