OSDL has run workloads using the SAP DB and PostgreSQL.  However, each
of the workloads have been tweaked to work around deficiencies of each
database with respect to the TPC benchmarks from with the DBT workloads
are derrived.  Since there are extensive modifications to each workload
an that the fact that each workload operates under different situations
(SAP uses raw disk, PostgreSQL uses a file system), it is not beneficial
to compare numbers between different databases.

Remember, the intent is to provide a tool kit that can be used to 
benefit the community.  From other postings, it appears that these 
workloads we have available can be used to help the PostgreSQl community
develop a better database; one that is better able to handle the kinds
of stress these workloads can produce when scaled to large database

We have been using these kits to characterize the abilities of the Linux
kernel.  To show that these workloads work with two different databases
implies that Linux is capable of supporting these two databases.

The other tool kits, by the way, are being ported to PostgreSQL as well.
Help is needed to tune the workloads to exercise PostgreSQL better.  It
would be great if you could get involved with the porting efforts and
assist with the tuning of the PostgreSQL kit.
