I'm trying to build a simple performance test on a rails 3 app that
operates on a large database (~150GB). We copy production data to our
dev/test setup every night so that we have a realistic environment for
I followed the guide on creating a test and tried to run it using
$ rake test:benchmark
Unbelievably, this tried to drop my test database!!! Fortunately it didn't
have permission to do this and failed. Is there a way to skip this step
and just run the test against the DB as it exists already. From the guide,
it seems like most rails apps have their test data in yaml files or
something but I don't understand how this would scale to a production
environment. Code that works well on 100 or so database rows is not
necessarily going to work well on millions of rows.
Feel free to point me in the direction of relevant documentation and tell
me to RTFM.
