Elasticsearch Version Support¶
Minimum supported version¶
Rally 2.1.1.dev0 can benchmark Elasticsearch 6.0.0 and above.
The latest version of Rally allows to benchmark all currently supported versions of Elasticsearch. Once an Elasticsearch version reaches end-of-life, Rally will support benchmarking the corresponding version for two more years. For example, Elasticsearch 1.7.x has been supported until 2017-01-16. Rally drops support for Elasticsearch 1.7.x two years after that date on 2019-01-16. Version support is dropped in the next Rally maintenance release after that date.
