Run Speed test with less than 1000 issues in database

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Testing database access speed

Is there a way to run the speed test if you have less than 1000 Issues in your database? When i run the speed test on my JIRA instance i got the following exception:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot iterate over 1000 issues as there are only 257 issues in the database
    at com.atlassian.util.benchmark.JIRASQLPerformance.getTests(
    at com.atlassian.util.benchmark.JIRASQLPerformance.main(

I'm pretty sure that this is the source code itself ( You can of course recompile it as necessary. 

Thank you @Timothy Chin for the link to the source code. With that i found out that the .jar file accepts a  parameter where you can pass the number of runs. So you can Use the following command:



java -cp PATH_TO_THE/atlassian-log-analysis-0.1.1.jar:PATH_TO_YOUR_JDBC_DRIVER_JAR \
com.atlassian.util.benchmark.JIRASQLPerformance \
> db-perf-test.txt

And with that it worked fine. Someone should update the wiki page with that information smile
