I also like to add an suggestion.

At this moment I do a lot of vitalizing with VMware ESX and the first question I always get from my customers: What is the impact on a SQL-Server database on a Virtual machine compared with a Physical machine.

Using SQL-Data Generator to import 1.000.000 records in 25 tables give a nice stress on the server. Only, I can’t really compare it as I can’t see exact how much time it takes to finish the job. I like to suggest to supply a start and finish time so we also can use SQL Data Compare to test server speed without the need of sophisticated testing tools

I already get an possible work around from your engineers with an example using some command line commands, but I prefer to have timer functionality as part of the product itself :)

    If there is anything else you would like to see in the release, we would really like to hear your feedback.

    If anyone else would like the command line commands mentioned, please contact me and I can send them to you.
