Oracle data load testing tips

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonMay 27, 2016

Question: What do I do to generate load data for Oracle load testing?  I need to generate sample data for the load test and I need to know what tools I can use for Oracle load testing.  What are the main Oracle data load testing tools?

Answer:  The Oracle software offers the "Oracle Applications load testing suite" (OATS)which allow you to generate test data for Oracle load testing.

Also, see these important notes on Oracle benchmark testing and tools for data loading.

Read my notes on Oracle stress testing. There are many ways to do load testing in Oracle:

- Replay SQL workloads:  You can capture real-world workloads and replay them in your load testing database.  See real_applications_testing for details on load testing with RAT.

- Manually submit SQL:  You can use the Linux/UNIX "nohup" command to submit 100 SQL statements for simultaneous execution.

- Use a load testing benchmarking software package:  There are many tools for Oracle load testing.  See my tips on benchmark_testing.  The load testing packages include the benchmark factory, hammerdb and RAT, Oracle real application testing.
