Rally 0.5.2 released

We have just released Rally 0.5.2. This is a maintenance release and an upgrade is recommended for all users.

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.


  • Rally did not respect HTTP proxy settings when doing a connection check (#245)
  • We now show a clear error message in case users start Rally with an unknown challenge (#244)

Additionally, we have also upgraded an internal component of Rally. Rally 0.5.1 uses a version of that component which can lead to hanging benchmarks in rare circumstances.
