Hello Allen,
  You may check load2test product that provided by Enteros ( It has database protocol parser that can parse Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase and MySQL TCP traffic and create load test scripts out of it. After that scripts can be replayed with the ability to parallelize replay traffic or alter think time.

You might want to take a look at the “Affordable Alternatives to Database Replay” thread I started last month.  To summarize – here are some alternatives to RAT that you might want to look into:  
Simora (looked a bit complicated to setup from my quick glance, but I didn’t spend much time on it yet):
Hammerora (this one looked the closest alternative to RAT to me, but I haven’t had time to test it yet either):
Swingbench (looks like a great product for generic load testing, but doesn’t currently provide ability to generate load based on trace files):
