Here is Rally Step by Step Guide
Available Rally facilities
To be able to run complex benchmark scenarios on somewhat more sophisticated OpenStack deployment types, you should familiarize yourself with more deploy engines, server providers and benchmark scenarios available in Rally.
- List of available Deploy engines (including their description and usage examples): Deploy engines
- List of available Server providers (including their description and usage examples): Server providers
- List of available Benchmark scenarios (including their description and usage examples): Benchmark scenarios
You can also learn about different Rally entities without leaving the Command Line Interface. There is a special search engine embedded into Rally, which, for a given search query, prints documentation for the corresponding benchmark scenario/deploy engine/... as fetched from the source code. This is accomplished by the rally info find command:
$ rally info find create_meter_and_get_stats CeilometerStats.create_meter_and_get_stats (benchmark scenario). Test creating a meter and fetching its statistics. Meter is first created and then statistics is fetched for the same using GET /v2/meters/(meter_name)/statistics. Parameters: - name_length: length of generated (random) part of meter name - kwargs: contains optional arguments to create a meter $ rally info find Authenticate Authenticate (benchmark scenario group). This class should contain authentication mechanism. For different types of clients like Keystone. $ rally info find some_non_existing_benchmark Failed to find any docs for query: 'some_non_existing_benchmark'
