MySQL Database Load Testing with DTM DB Stress

DTM DB Stress was designed for database load testing. It supports MySQL connections as well as a few most popular database systems and desktop formats. With this tool users enabled to run bulk data inserting or modifying process. The users can tune the process by following parameters:

  • A number of concurrent virtual users.
  • Each virtual user or user group activity type.
  • A number of iterations and individual iteration properties like delays before and after execution.

As we mentioned, the load test can contain OLAP (query execution) and OLTP (adding/loading, modifying and deleting data in the database) activities. The user of the stress tool can configure a realistic job that describes how many virtual users should be emulated by the software.
