WL#1121: Simplifying test data generation
Affects: Server-7.1 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
Currently to create large enough set of data we have to write the scripts etc which makes generation of test cases/bugs hard. As soon as we get INFORMATION_SCHEMA or similar virtual system tables we shall also add virtual table which would allow us to generate dump data (sort of /dev/zero) So we could for example use the following query to generate table with 1.000.000 random values: INSERT INTO random select rand() from zero_source limit 1000000
