Here are what I have found: Load and Performance Tools. This is a huge list of tools, you can find out what product is better for you, but I could not see any tool that has been created specially for Oracle databases (on my first sight). For Sql Server

I was going to post the same question for SQL Server having done a bit of digging around recently.

How about the Transaction Processing Council (TPC) workload generators?

  • TPC-E is the latest OLTP benchmark.
  • TPC-C is the previous version of the OLTP benchmark
  • TPC-H is for OLAP/DSS.

If you're inclined to dig into the code, you may be able to re-purpose TPCCBench which is SQL Server specific.
