This release contains new features, new task plugins, bug fixes, various code and API improvements.
New Features & API changes¶
Add the ability to specify versions for clients in scenarios
You can call self.clients(“glance”, “2”) and get any client for specific version.
Add API for tempest uninstall
$ rally-manage tempest uninstall # removes fully tempest for active deployment
Add a –uuids-only option to rally task list
$ rally task list –uuids-only # returns list with only task uuids
Adds endpoint to –fromenv deployment creation
$ rally deployment create –fromenv # recognizes standard OS_ENDPOINT environment variable
Configure SSL per deployment
Now SSL information is deployment specific not Rally specific and rally.conf option is deprecated
[spec] Proposal for new task input file format
This spec describes new task input format that will allow us to generate multi scenario load which is crucial for HA and more real life testing:
Add a maximum concurrency option to rps runner
To avoid running to heavy load you can set ‘concurrency’ to configuration and in case if cloud is not able to process all requests it won’t start more parallel requests then ‘concurrency’ value.
restore ability to use fixed IP and floating IP to connect to VM via ssh
Kwargs in nova scenario were wrongly passed
- [new] aborted_on_sla
This is internal SLA criteria, that is added if task was aborted
- [new] something_went_wrong
This is internal SLA criteria, that is added if something went wrong, context failed to create or runner raised some exceptions
14 bugs were fixed, the most critical are:
- Set default task uuid to running task. Before it was set only after task was fully finished.
- The “rally task results” command showed a disorienting “task not found” message for a task that is currently running.
- Rally didn’t know how to reconnect to OpenStack in case if token expired.
- New tutorial task templates
- Various fixes
