I want to use BF to run the TPC-E benchmark.
The database I am using is MySQL
I can set up a DSN that points to the MySQL host by specifying the MySQL Host Name, a valid user name and corresponding password. Setting of a DSN via the ODBC admin tool did not require me to specify a data base name.
When I am creating a profile in BF is requires a DSN and a Database Name.
To run a TPC-E benchmark to I need to create the database on my own first and then let BF run against that database?
I thought that BF would create a target database automatically and then run the test and report the results.
Are my assumtions incorrect? Do I need to create a populated data base and then let BF run TPC-E against what I created, and if BF creates the Database for you what do you put in the database name field in the profile wizard?
Thanks for any help
