    Running scripts on a huge database

    I can creating scripts such that some simple data is required. But the client is demanding that it should be run with their live database which has enormous data (say around 10000 employees). Which is better whether to run on sample data or live data?
    (I am thinking running on live data can create unnecessary complication of handling such huge data)
    I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.

    Re: Running scripts on a huge database

    I'd take live data over sample data every time.

    If handling large amounts of data creates complications I think that's exactly what I'd want to see as a result of my testing. Isn't it always about mitigating risk??
