I want to compare the performance of two MySql servers.

Since we are accessing the database using Java/JDBC, the benchmark should be written in Java. It does not have to be MySql specififc, any compatible JDBC program will do.

Oh, and it should be free (as in beer). Thanks!

Try BenchmarkSQL

It's JDBC, and it's free as in free and free as in beer.

And a nice Oracle page on benchmarking.
