Hi,

I have been asked to see if our new database system is up to handling a high load and need to run a transaction which includes a number of inserts and selects multiple times, to see the speeds that can be achieved. Ideally we are looking to want about 300 transactions a second and need to see how this can be tuned and improved.

I am interested in knowing what the best way to simulate multiple transactions to the database and what tool or way is possible to do this?

Thanks.

That's brilliant. Just what I needed for these initial tests. I was just starting to write my own program to do the exact same thing!

Thanks.

You can use the Profiler GUI to playback a trace against a server. But, it's single threaded, so you're not going to be able to scale it up much. SQL Server 2012 includes a new tool, Distributed Replay. You can run that against a 2008 database. It allows you add lots and lots more machines to run a trace playback. You can really stress the system to the max that way.
