Sounds a lot like TOAD Benchmark Factory where you capture a trace file or files using 10046 or TOAD's session browser and pass it to TBF for replay where it can simulate various loadings and stress test the app/database.

There's a freeware version available which allows a stress test of up to 20 users to be simulated from your one-user trace file. The paid for version does up to 40,000 users.

Have a look at

And, should the need ever arise, "Benchmark Factory is available for Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Sybase, MySQL, and other databases via ODBC connectivity.".


Disclaimer : I have no financial interest in this product, although I am a happy TOAD user and have been for many years and a member of Quest's TeamT.

I have no idea whether this is exactly what Oracle are offering in 11g, I have not yet had the time to get hold of and test out 11g - I'm so far behind at the moment as we are only just starting to think about going to 10g :o(
