Rally 0.4.5 released


(Daniel Mitterdorfer) #1

We've just released Rally 0.4.5. Thanks to your continued reports we could add several improvements in this release.

Highlights

The changelog contains the complete list of changes.

All users are recommended to upgrade to this version.

Breaking changes

If you have ever used the "tiny" track, expect it to be removed within the next weeks. It was never meant as a proper track but only for integration testing in Rally. However, it is possible now to run any track with a new flag --test-mode, e.g.:

esrally --distribution-version=5.0.0 --track=geonames --test-mode

This mode is experimental and at the moment only meant for development. Hence it is (intentionally) not well documented. Should you develop your own tracks and be interested in it, please create a discussion topic and we'll see how to proceed based on your interest.

How to...?

  • ... upgrade: pip3 install --upgrade esrally
  • ... install: pip3 install esrally

Note: Depending on your system setup you probably need to prepend these commands with sudo.

Please follow the quickstart for a first time install though.

Questions and Feedback

If you have questions or feedback, please just post in the Rally forum.
