15.16.3. Description

taler-aggregator-benchmark is a command-line tool to fill an exchange database with records suitable for benchmarking the taler-exchange-aggregator. The taler-aggregator-benchmark tool does not run the actual workload for the benchmark (which usually consists of starting multiple taler-exchange-aggregator processes) and instead only prepares the database with synthetic work.
