OpenLink ODBC Bench is an ODBC benchmarking tool providing real-time comparative benchmarking for ODBC drivers, database engines, and operating system combinations. The benchmarks in this application are loosely based on the TPC-A and TPC-C standard benchmarks, with modifications to specifically test the performance of an ODBC driver and/or database engine in a client/server environment. The benchmark results can be automatically stored to an ODBC data source or XML file for further analysis and comparisons to be made.
Size and shape of Big Picture(TM)
I think it's a question of expectation as well; either you're interested in following the commercial world where you have millions of companies all spewing out code with stuff-all interest in it, and/OR you're interested in the community that codes for pleasure to fulfill a need - opensource and the FSF strike me as more about writing something small and neat to get the job done (and "maybe someone else will benefit from this") than the former.
