Filling all your tables with test data

13 Feb

Problem

Database Assessment process for any new project or any new database have more parts one of this parts Assess the most hitting stored procedures and do stress test on it to be sure it can afford as example 500 concurrent user  without any issue in the IO , CPU and execution time , for doing this part we should have reasonable volume of  data in the table used in stored procedures , from two days i received request by new Database should be deploy in production at this time we start our work on the database to do Full database assessment process and when i arrive to the point of filling the table i found 50 tables should be filling by one milion of record  for test.

Solution :

i do one Stored procedure for filling any table with any schema design and this stored procedures covered the most worst scenario like the below cases but this table should have minimum one record 

  1. covered the tables with identity columns
  2. covered the tables with computed columns
  3. covered the tables with Primary key columns and not identity
  4. covered the tables with Primary key columns with data type uniqueidentifier
  5. covered the table build on different schema
  6. covered the table with special column name as example column name KEY

by this script we can fill any volume of data in any table .

—Exec FillingTable ‘FW’,’QuickSettings’,’1000′
IF EXISTS ( SELECT *
FROM sys.objects
WHERE type = ‘P’
AND name = ‘FillingTable’ )
DROP PROCEDURE FillingTable
GO

CREATE PROC FillingTable
@SchemaName NVARCHAR(100) = ‘dbo’ ,
@TableName NVARCHAR(MAX) ,
@batchCount NVARCHAR(200)
AS

DEMO PART:

  • create Schema  and table test1 on it
Create Schema AC

Go
/****** Object: Table [AC].[TEST4] Script Date: 12/02/2015 11:10:23 PM ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
SET ANSI_PADDING ON
GO
CREATE TABLE [AC].[TEST1](
 [KEY] [int] NOT NULL,
 [FirstName] [varchar](100) NULL,
 [LastName] [varchar](100) NULL,
 [BirthDate] [datetime] NULL,
 [BirthMonth] AS (datepart(month,[BirthDate])),
 CONSTRAINT [PK_TEST4] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
(
 [KEY] ASC
)WITH (PAD_INDEX = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF,
ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON, FILLFACTOR = 80,data_compression=page) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO
SET ANSI_PADDING OFF
GO

  • insert one record on the table
Insert into [AC].[TEST1]
Values
(1,'Mustafa','EL-Masry',GETDATE())

  • Execute Stored procedures FillingTable
Exec [dbo].[FillingTable] 'AC' ,'TEST1','1000000'

Select Count(1) from AC.test1 with (Nolock)

after this you will find the table now have one millions of record
