DTM DB Stress is a software for stress testing and load testing the server parts of information systems and database applications, as well as databases and servers themselves. It is suitable for solution scalability and performance testing, comparison and tuning. The tool allows users to create and configure a continuous set of requests to the server of the OLAP (query execution) and OLTP (adding/loading, modifying and deleting data in the database) types. The user can specify a number of virtual users to be emulated, priority and type of requests for each task (virtual user type).

The stress tool is useful for any information system developer or QA department employee who wants to make sure the product under development can work with a large number of simultaneous connections and concurring queries and transactions.
