Benchmark Factory (formerly Benchmark Factory for Databases)
Databases contain massive amounts of information, which is usually spread into different tables and linked together for increased accessibility. The truly big databases, on the other hand, need to be able to handle a tremendous amount of stress, due to the high workload and the numerous requests it receives on a regular basis.
Benchmark your databases and conduct workload replays
Benchmark Factory is a fully-featured software solution that allows you to put your database system to the test, by conducting a variety of benchmarks, workload captures and replays. Its scalability testing capabilities allow it to efficiently measure and report the state of your servers, thus enabling you to increase the performance and improve the overall database management.
In addition, the utility can also be used to reduce the risks that come into play when you apply patches, upgrades, or you intend on migrating the information altogether to another server. Hence, before you bring any substantial changes to the database, you can first subject it to industry-standard benchmarks and workload stress tests, in order to assure the success of the procedure without damaging anything in the process.
Connect to a variety of database server types and schedule workload replays
When it comes to the supported server architectures and database servers, Benchmark Factory is able to perform the operations on a wide variety of severs, including MySQL, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server.
