Free Load Testing Tools for Oracle Database – Which One Do I Use?

It regularly happens to me that for testing purposes I have to generate load on an Oracle Database. The three most common situations leading to such a task are when I need to: assess the performance of a new platform or disk I/O subsystem; verify whether a set of SQL statements executed on a specific environment and/or configuration fulfills the expected performance requirements; perform usability and functionality checks of tools or utilities that require a non-trivial load to be carried out. The aim of this presentation is to introduce the freely available tools that I use, to explain how I use them, and to present real-world use cases of their utilization.
