Have you heard of the monthly print and web magazine Database Trends & Applications (DBTA)?
Did you know I'm the regular columnist covering SQL Server? For the past six months, I've been writing a series of articles about database benchmarking culminating in the latest article discussing my three favorite database benchmarking tools: the free, open-source HammerDB, the native SQL Server Distributed Replay Utility, and the commercial Benchmark Factory from Dell / Quest Software.
Wondering what else I wrote about in this series of six articles on database benchmarking? Pop on over to my latest database benchmarking article (http://kevinekline.com/2013/07/24/new-on-dbta-com-database-benchmarking-tools-the-final-article-in-the-database-benchmarking-series/) in the series to get a recap of all of the articles.

Have you ever run your own database benchmarks? If so, what tools did you use? Tell me what you think!
