I would also recommend that you work with the DBA and "technical team" for your project. The DBA may have additional monitoring that can be enabled for the test (and will probably want to do so!!). I also like to work with the DBA and any other technical folks to work out the list of metrics to capture. There are few things less satisfying that a pretty graph with primary colors that answers nobody's questions!! [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
