generate ds2 bulk load files.ps1:
This script will walk you through a series of questions to generate the bulk load files.
Please enter database size (integer expected) :
Any size from 1 MB to hundreds of terabytes can be generated.
It takes about 13 minutes on an Intel Q6600 to generate a 10GB data set and scales linearly.
So, 100GB takes 1 hour and 35 minutes on the same machine.
As a side note 100GB on the same Q6600 took 59 minutes to bulk load the data.
Please enter whether above database size is in (MB / GB) :
Specifiy the unit of measure megabytes or gigabytes
Please enter path of executables :
This is where you unpacked the executables to
Please enter path to store the output :
This where you want the CSV files to go. I recommend a seprate drive with plenty of free space.

SQL Server Scripts
This folder contains pre-generated SQL Server database and schema creation scripts. Modify to suit your needs.

The C source code for the four programs that generate the bulk load data.
using MinGW to compile them on Windows c:\MinGW\bin\gcc -MD -Os -s -o "output exec" "source file"
Sample batch file Build Windows Executables.bat for you to modify or use to do the build if you so desire.

Load Generator
The source code and executible to generate the workloads you can use a middle aspx tier stored in the web directory.
You can also generate load using the ds2sqlserverdriver.exe and the config generated earlier.

you can download just the executeables plus the web load generator files by downloading the release.zip package.
