Step 0. InstallationΒΆ

The easiest way to install Rally is by running its installation script:

wget -q -O- | bash
# or using curl:
curl | bash

If you execute the script as regular user, Rally will create a new virtual environment in ~/rally/ and install in it Rally, and will use sqlite as database backend. If you execute the script as root, Rally will be installed system wide. For more installation options, please refer to the installation page.

Note: Rally requires Python version 2.6, 2.7 or 3.4.

Now that you have rally installed, you are ready to start benchmarking OpenStack with it!
