App for random/ database inserts?

I need to simulate a heavy load of transactions in a database in order to test an app that I'm building. My app will monitor and transform some of these transactions but the process that will do the actual inserts is not ready yet.
I guess building my own wouldn't be too hard, but I have this feeling that someone has done this before, and much better that I would. I would need to be able to specify the information to be inserted, a range for every field, and a frequency.

Has anyone seen something like this?

Not free.. but look for Quest software's DataFactory.

Or just roll your own with a Perl script or something ?..
