Got stress? Sometimes the SQL Server needs some too

Enterprise Database Administration & Deployment
We hear it in every session and every webinar “…test…” regardless of it being upgrades, new code, performance tuning or any of a thousand changes. Once we confirm nothing breaks., we don’t need to check anything else, nothing could possibly change the results, right? What about load on the database(s) in question or the server as a whole? In this session four readily available tools, distributed replay, Hammer DB, SQL Query Stress and oStress will be introduced. The session will cover how to use the tools as well as which situations they shine in. Once introductions are made, we will spend a little time with two of my favorites, HammerDB and SQL Query Stress. Join me as we apply a little heat to our SQL Servers.
