Don't now if its a right place to ask, so if not please give me a hint. I need some software that do can emulate how Oracle works with disks (Notice: Not the Oracle workload tool). I've already took a look at solutions kinda Benchmark Factory (Quest Software), SwingBench, etc., but they do not emulate.

Are you talking about oracle the OS? Or another specific piece of software developed by them? – KronoS Oct 13 '10 at 14:59
I mean software that can emulets oracle DB commands, or something like that (kind of sqlio)) – jammy Oct 13 '10 at 15:05

Why not just grab Oracle Express Edition ?

Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE) is an entry-level, small-footprint database based on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 code base that's free to develop, deploy, and distribute

I think you should learn English a little better - my question is not about DB, but about oracle emulator. Thank you for now. – jammy Oct 13 '10 at 16:29
@jammy Perhaps you should form your question better. From your comment: software that can emulets( sic )oracle DB commands, or something like that Why emulate a database when you can get it ? – Sathya Oct 13 '10 at 16:31
Because I need to emulete it. KO?) – jammy Oct 13 '10 at 16:55
but ... Why? When you can have Express Edition for 100% compatibility, why go for a emulator with quirks or just doesn't work? – J-16 SDiZ Nov 8 '10 at 3:27
