Free Data Generator

Hi all,

We sometimes need real data to test an ETL process, a DB procedure, a special report or whatever involving data management.

Here is a nice and free data generator coded by Benjamin Keen, a talented coder from Vancouver.

This tools uses MySQL 4+ and PHP 4+ and is fully accessible via your web browser. Overall performance is very good and you can play with a lot of parameters in order to generate what your really want as dataset.

If you plan to generate a large amount of data, you'd better download this tool and run it locally.

A must have !
I use it a lot for tests, simulations .... very usefull.
