Elasticsearch Version Support#
Minimum supported version#
Rally 2.8.0.dev0 can benchmark Elasticsearch 6.8.0 and above. However, Rally does not support Elasticsearch clusters using the OSS license.
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 its last minor version until a new major version comes out. For example, after the release of Elasticsearch 8.0.0, Rally dropped support for Elasticsearch < 6.8.0.
Rally only supports Elasticsearch 7.x and above when using Elasticsearch as a metrics store.
