Best existing tracks/challenges for benchmarking read-heavy or read-mostly workloads?

Fellow Rally users,

I'm interested in benchmarking read-heavy workloads, preferably some that already exist in Rally by default. Are there any tracks or challenges that implement such a workload already?



Mentioning read-heavy I presume you mean heavy while querying.

Many of the existing tracks (see: geonames, nested, nyc_taxis, pmc) have queries. You can have a look at the results from our nightly benchmark system at

If you need to adjust the load that queries generate, you can always tinker with the clients and target-throughput (e.g. here) in the task definitions.
