If you use swingbench take note of sbutil

This is going to be a very short post for a change. I have used Swingbench extensively and really love the tool. Many thanks to Dominic Giles!

Recently he announced a new tool on his blog that you can use to inflate your data volume. So instead of using the “-scale” argument when executing oewizard you can just keep the defaults and later on create as much data as you like. Here is an example, the reason for this post.

Little things worth knowing: creating the Swingbench order entry schema “lights out”

This is a little note, primarily to myself I guess, about the creation of the order entry schema (part of Swingbench, written by Dominic Giles) when no VNC sessions are available (although you can almost always use port-forwarding :). Instead, you can create the schema on the command line. I always execute commands on remote systems in screen for increased peace of mind. Should the network drop, the order entry generation will continue as if nothing ever happened.

Like many others I use Swingbench during trainings and presentations to have some activity on a system. Very useful for demonstrating ASH and OEM, and many other things too!
