One of the Exam topics I find difficult to prepare for is performance tuning. The performance of any SQL instance with only one user who occasionally runs a query in SSMS is most likely going to be excellent, and you won't see the effects of configuring Resource Govenor, paralellism settings, fine tuning indexes, etc.

I have limited opportunities at work to play with these things because most learning is from experimentation and learning from what doesn't work, and we don't implement things on live systems unless we're very certain we're doing the right thing, or the live system is actually broken.

Are there apps available that can throw large numbers of queries at AdventureWorks, or otherwise simulate a production-level load on non-production systems?
