Issue Cause/Solution
"Bad packet" error when testing against Oracle 12c on Linux

When testing against an Oracle 12c database in a Linux environment, if you encounter a "bad packet" error when loading benchmark objects, you might attempt the following workaround.

Workaround: You can reduce the number of rows per commit by adding a key to the Registry.

  1. In the Registry, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Quest Software\Benchmark Factory for Databases\Benchmark Factory Console\Settings.
  2. Add the following DWORD key: RowsPerCommit.
  3. Specify a value for the number of rows per commit, for example 25.
  4. Then navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Quest Software\Benchmark Factory for Databases\Benchmark Factory Agent\Settings.
  5. Add the same DWORD key and the same value.

Caution: Editing your Registry incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems. It is advised that you back up your registry before modifying it.



Use Benchmark Factory with SQL Server 2005

For connections to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 (or later), use the SQL Server native connection or ODBC connection. See for more information about SQL Server Native Client support.


MySQL Initialization Settings

The MySQL repository database can take up a large amount of space on a system. The my.ini file allows you to edit the initialization settings and adjust the size of the MySQL repository used by Benchmark Factory.  For additional information on setting MySQL database parameters, please visit

Note: By default in Benchmark Factory 7.1.1 or earlier, a MySQL database is created and used as the Repository, unless you selected the SQLite option during installation. In Benchmark Factory 7.2 or later, by default a SQLite database is created and used as the Repository.
