How to use Rally to find out performance bottlenecks in OpenStack environment
Rally is intended for providing the community with a benchmarking tool that is capable of performing specific, complex and reproducible tests for real deployment scenarios. More details about Rally can be found at https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Rally
In the session I'll intorduce the audience about Rally and we'll see :-
how to deploy an OpenStack environment like DevStack for benchmarking, which can be used for re-producible benchmarks ?
scenarios like how many instances one can start on the given hardware setup to meet the SLA.
how to run regression performance tests and compare historocal data.
