SQLStress - A SQL Server Stress Test Tool


SQLStress is a tool to stress test a Microsoft SQL Server installation. Its main purpose is to find infrastructure problems within an installation. It can also be used for hardware sizing, system tuning or benchmarking. The focus is on simplicity. You should be up and running within minutes.

Prerequisite is an installed version of the .Net Framework 2.0. The tool will run on x86, x64 and Itanium. It is tested on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005, however most of the functionality will work on Microsoft SQL Server 2000 as well.


The current version of the tool is free, but I reserve the right to create a commercial version with additional functionality in the future.
