OpenLink ODBC Bench is an open-source ODBC Benchmarking tool providing real-time comparative benchmarking for ODBC Drivers, Database Engines, and Operating Systems combinations. The Benchmarks in this application are loosely based on the TPC-A and TPC-C standard benchmarks, with modifications to specifically test the performance of an ODBC Driver and/or Database Engine in a client/server environment. The benchmark results can be automatically stored to an ODBC Datasource or XML file for further analysis and comparisons to be made.

Bug Fixes

If you find a bug and have the know-how to fix it, please create a "diff file" using GNU's "diff", preferably with "context" (diff -c or diff -u).

If the patch is small, add the patch file as an attachment to your mail if possible, otherwise tell us where we can pick it up. This will reduce the turnaround time for new updates etc.

Patches and new contributions can be submitted as diffs from the current archive by running the command: git format-patch; these may then be emailed to the OpenLink iODBC source archive manager at to be included the next distribution. Please provide accompanying documentation on which bugs are fixed or new features are introduced.
