Throughout my career, I had to go through the pain of benchmarking often enough to get fed up with all the existing tools and decide to code my own. The result of this endeavor is WorkloadTools: a collection of tools to collect, analyze and replay SQL Server workloads, on premises and in the cloud.
At the moment, the project includes 3 tools:
– SqlWorkload – a command line tool to capture, replay and analyze a workload
– ConvertWorkload – a command line tool to convert existing workloads (traces and extended events) to the format used by SqlWorkload
– WorkloadViewer – a GUI tool to visualize and analyze workload data
