SQL Scripts & Samples

Posted Sep 15, 2001


By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

This is a Perl script that generates random orders in the Northwind tables. It does not re-set inventory and it does not take into account the employee territories when generating sales - but it does do a good job of making the orders random enough so that there is little repetition.

I needed it to simulate loads and to generate large databases from which to test analysis services and such. You can also run the script multiple times concurrently to see how well your server is holding up.

You'll need Perl to run the script. You can get it at www.activestate.com for free. It installs very easily.
