About Benchmark Factory

Quest Software is pleased to make available Benchmark Factory® 8.4 to meet your database workload testing needs. Benchmark Factory is a database performance and code scalability testing tool that simulates users and transactions on the database and replays production workload in non-production environments. With Benchmark Factory developers, DBAs, and QA teams can validate that their databases will scale as user loads increase, application changes are made, and platform changes are implemented.

Benchmark Factory is available for Oracle®, SQL Server®, IBM® DB2®, SAP®, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and other databases via ODBC connectivity. Benchmark Factory:

  • Simulates thousands of concurrent users with a minimal amount of hardware.
  • Simulates database production workloads.
  • Reports tests results with built-in reporting features.

Upon completion of a test execution, all test results are collected and stored in the repository for data analysis and reporting. Benchmark Factory collects a variety of informative and detailed statistics that include:

  • Overall server throughput (measured in transactions per second/minute or bytes transferred).
  • Detailed transaction executed statistics by individual agent workstations producing a load.
