Oracle Database Load Testing Tools

  • Swingbench – from Dominic Giles (Oracle UK). This is a free tool, similar to Hammerora, that has a set of Supplied Benchmarks you may use to test the performance of your Oracle-based system. It allows you to build your own basic testing scripts. Originally, the tool was developed to test Oracle RAC based systems. Dominic’s presentation gives a good overview of the tool. Several folks at Pythian have been using this tool. My team members configured and ran the tests recently to compare source (old Solaris) and target (VM based Linux) system.
