So we have another tool that can do benchmarks. Now in a juju-specific
way. How far are we from having juju-specific test definitions?

Best regards

PS: LAVA could do tests and benchmarks from day one, I hope to fill
that gap for checkbox one day.

Hello Everyone,

We in the Juju Ecosystems team would like to announce a new tool for
charm authors and users alike! This is a topic discussed about a lot
in the past few office hours and UOS, benchmarking workloads with

Currently, anyone can benchmark services and workloads using Juju
Actions and any Juju version greater than or equal to 1.23. What this
announcement brings is a suite of tools to help standardize the effort
around benchmarking to make authoring and consuming benchmarks very
easy. We’re releasing this tool as “charm-benchmark” which is
currently available through pip and soon to be packaged in other

charm-benchmark provides a set of commands that abstract the calls to
`action-set` to ensure all benchmarks are written in a compatible
format. Adam Israel has written a blog post which goes over
charm-benchmark in more details, including how to write your first
benchmark action[0]! We have a set of charms we’ve created that have
examples of benchmarking: siege, pts, mysql-benchmark, mongodb, rally,
and a few others which are covered in Adam's post.

We invite users and authors alike to help us fill in the blanks for
services and workloads that don’t have benchmarks actions already.
This announcement is to kick off discussion for people who are
interested in benchmarking their workloads and giving you the tools
you need to get the results you want.

Also a reminder that we’ll be covering benchmarking in the next Juju
Office hours[1] and we’d love to help anyone who wants to get started,
you can find me, (marcoceppi), Adam (aisrael), or Tim (tvansteenburgh)
on #juju on Freenode and on this list.
