A couple that I know about are

Are there any others? I am looking for tools what can generate random workload (based on some parameters) that can be saved (possibly as an SQL file) and run against an Oracle 11gR2 db separately.

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.
