You could use a combination of JUnitPerf and dbuint. or JUinitPerf and sqlunit. It would involve java coding.

JMETER with JDBC COnnections to the database servers.

If you need to engage in performance testing tool then pick a tool designed from the outset for performance testing, otherwise you could work yourself into an efficiency problem with the tool akin to using the butt end of a screwdriver to drive nails. This is not to suggest that a screwdriver is not an immenently useful tool, but that its design efficiency is in an area other than that of driving nails. Same holds for performance testing tools vs unit testing tools.

A short trek over to google should provide a link or two or three for downloading JMETER

Now comes the big, ugly questions
  • Does your team have the skills to use the tool effectively
  • Will the tool report in such a way to make it easy to report against your requirements
  • Will this tool work in your environment?
  • Will this tool monitor your infrastructure to allow you to identify bottlenecks effectively

You can quite easily have a negative ROI if your tool is a poor fit for your needs and your organization's skills, independent of licensing model.
