The Oracle Application [Testing Suite] is used heavily in our organization for independent regions to perform Oracle upgrades. Baseline performance can be monitored before the upgrade and compared to a production query load, we are able to easily monitor server performance and make an accurate prediction of upgrade performance. DBA's are able to use the testing suite for ongoing validation of database performance during peak times.
