UKOUG Using Swingbench for Oracle Research
17 September 2019, 12:00 - 13:00
Dominic Giles's Swingbench utility is a well-known load generator for the Oracle database. It comes with a number of benchmarks of which Order Entry (SOE) is probably the best-known. Besides running Swingbench to simulate a workload either in graphical or character mode, it is also possible to use the schemas it generates to perform research about Oracle database features and how it interacts with the operating system.
This talk gives an overview of the Swingbench suite, and how it can be used to find out a lot more about the internal mechanisms of the Oracle database.
