So if you want to test how your system reacts or more ...

  • Geek City: Poor (Wo)Man's Load Testing

      Last July, I posted about a way to run a batch multiple times when you use GO as the batch separator. I usually take advantage of this technique when I am loading test data into a table. I was mentioning this feature to my class last week in Minneapolis, and one of the students thought that this feature had another use. He thought it ...
