How to Run the Benchmark
Note:  The DBT-3 benchmark scripts run on Linux only. If you want to run the benchmark on Vector for Windows, you can generate the data on Linux, transfer the data files to Windows, and then load the data into a Vector for Windows database. Alternatively, install Linux emulation software on your Windows machine.
Running the benchmark involves the following steps:
1. Download the DBT-3 package, make the database generator tool, dbgen, and then generate the data using the dbgen tool (see  Generate Data).
2. Start Vector.
3. Create a database.
4. Create a Vector table.
5. Bulk load the data into the table created in Step 4.
6. Create statistics using the optimizedb utility.
7. Run a reporting query.
