    Two others I have used - which are very useful , one is free and the other costs:
    1)Jmeter
    2)HP LoadRunner
    I've used on both DB2 and SQL Server

    I have seen that Jmeter has some issues and it will not work completely as we expect, as I believe its a freeware to use.
    Further Benchmark factory and Quest tool are specifically designed for SQL Server arena, so it is best to suggest them.

    Satya,
    From an application stack perspective - I found JMeter very useful - mainly because it allows the developers to design test patterns. I haven't seen any issues, but if you have seen issues, let me know.
    It is important in testing - that both user load and stres testing occur . Benchmarked and documented.
    A key issue is creating the underlying "noise" to allow realistic testing. For example, if testing on a shared SAN - then recreating the underlying cross traffic is key.
    To that effect HP Load Runner is very good
