The MicrosoftSQL Server Distributed Replay Utility can use multiple computers to replay trace data, simulating a mission-critical workload. By performing a replay on a test server before and after a SQL Server upgrade, you can measure performance differences and look for any incompatibilities your application may have with the upgrade. For more information, see SQL Server Distributed Replay.
