          A toolset that lets uses evaluate, test, and tune an Rdb system using a
           precise application model (data and workload). BenchWorks is driven by
           a GUI, and automates and facilitates all aspects of benchmarking and testing
           an Rdb system, including designing the database and the workload, and
           multiclient simulation and analysis. BenchWorks' Automatic Test Data Generator
           (ADG) lets users generate a complicated dataset for testing client/server
           systems in the early phases of a project where no data or partial data
           is available. The tool provides standard data types and a variety of distributions,
           including custom, user-defined distributions for synthetic test data.
           When partial data is available, ADG takes the existing data and mixes
           it (if necessary). BenchWorks' Workload Modeler provides an environment
           for workload modeling. Users can specify a workload in C, using BenchWorks
           libraries, to model any situation (including mixing transactions) and
           synchronize tasks. BenchWorks also provides analysis andvisualization
           tools. Users can compute and graphically display statistics such as frequency
           vs. response time for a selected transaction, and throughput vs. elapsed
           time. Runs on SunOS, Solaris, HP-UX, and IBM AIX. $35,000. www.infogy.com=$35,000
