SQL Resource Kit - dbgen - Database Generator


I was wondering if anyone uses dbgen from the SQL resource kit or similar.

It generates random data and inserts into database tables. It can use any of
several distribution schemes.

I had a look at it, and it doesn't appear to live up to its billing.

It doesn't handle identity columns correctly, and while adding that to the
supplied code is relatively easy, the supplied code doesn't have the domain
or lookup for foreign key support in the code, while it was in the
executable. That is, the code is out of sync with the executable.

Does anyone have suggestions/code/tool they use?

Kind Regards

David Todd
