Benchmarking an existing cluster attempt ending with a crash

Trying Benchmarking an existing cluster.

Node (es cluster running in docker container) configuration:
esrally version: 0.11.0
ES cluster version: 5.6.9

Coordinator configuration:
esrally version 0.11.0

Started the Rally daemon on each machine.

Command used to start benchmarking:
esrally --track=track_name --pipeline=benchmark-only --target-hosts=http://username:pass@es_cluster_ip_addr:9200 --distribution-version=5.6.9

The command above crashes with fatal error message No compatible ActorSystem could be found
The goal is to run rally benchmarking successfully.
Thank you.


I assume that you are generating load from only one machine. If you use benchmark-only there is no need to start an actor system. Can you please stop any running actor systems with esrallyd stop and retry?

Cool. Stopping rally deamons solved the issue.
Thank you.

Glad to hear it works now for you. :slight_smile:
