Rally tests on a running cluster


I have a 3 node cluster, it is in production... how can I test it with rally without damaging it's performance?

Not sure I understand the question. If you use Rally to put load on a production cluster it will naturally affect any other traffic to that cluster. What is it you are trying to achieve?

I want to check my HW and configurations, to see if any improvements can be made

Never tried rally before, how can I know it won't stress my cluster into breaking it?

I suspect you will need to configure a custom track and use rate limiting to slowly increase the load. I would however recommend running it against a test cluster instead if possible.

Well, running on a test node is not something we can do...

I'll try limiting the load
