Because OVN Scale Test is mostly a plugin of Rally, you should install Rally firstly, then install it on top of Rally.
Rally is dedicated to OpenStack now(this situation will be change soon, Rally developers are splitting Rally from OpenStack: Rally Brainstorm), OVN Scale Test makes some changes on Rally to skip OpenStack specific code, and these changes have not been pushed to Rally upstream. Hence you need to use a forked Rally from repo https://github.com/l8huang/rally.git, you can clone it and install it by running its installation script:
$ git clone https://github.com/l8huang/rally.git $ cd rally $ ./install_rally.sh
If you execute the script as regular user, Rally will create a new virtual environment in ~/rally/ and install in it, 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 Rally installation page.
Note: Rally requires Python version 2.7 or 3.4.
Install OVN Scale Test¶
After Rally is installed, you can install OVN Scale Test now. Get a copy of it from repo https://github.com/openvswitch/ovn-scale-test.git:
$ git clone https://github.com/openvswitch/ovn-scale-test.git $ cd ovn-scale-test $ ./install.sh
If installed successful, you can see:
====================================== Installation of OVN scale test is done! ======================================= In order to work with Rally you have to enable the virtual environment with the command: . /home/<user>/rally/bin/activate You need to run the above command on every new shell you opened before using Rally, but just once per session.
