Hi guys,

i'm planning try to do a comparative between some DBMS
and postgresql (informix, oracle, m$ sql server,
firebird and even mysql) i'm coordinating with people
in the irc spanish postgresql channel.

2) point me to a good benchmark test or script that
can be used?

The TPC tests are fairly widely accepted. The thing with a benchmark is they are unlikely to simulate your real traffic. But it is always fun to look at numbers

3) any comments?

If you plan on making your results public be very careful with the license agreements on the other db's. I know Oracle forbids the release of benchmark numbers without their approval.
