LobBench 1.1.0 is out NOW! With it comes support for brand new Oracle Database 12c. But there have been some other significant enhancements to LobBench. With the support of 32k VARCHAR2 columns in 12c, LobBench loads now 100KB BLOBs rather than 10k. It also allows you to load the content of a file rather than artificial data. This can come handy if you consider to move your files into the database and want to see how fast loading and retrieving those files would be.
This new version of LobBench does not only run now on the latest version of Java (Java 7 Update 4) and the latest version of Apache Commons-Math (3.0) but also introduces a new database wait class monitor that reports which waits occurred during the individual tests!
