How to achieve it…

Carry out the following to benchmark an OpenStack Object Storage cluster:

  • First, create a configuration file named /etc/swift/swift-bench.conf, containing the following contents:                                                                                                                           configuration file
  • With this in place, we can simply execute swift-bench, specifying our configuration file:

This produces the following output:execute swift-bench

How it works…

OpenStack Objects Storage comes with a benchmarking tool named swift- bench. This runs through a series of puts, gets, and deletions, calculating the throughput and reporting of any failures in our OpenStack Objectc Storage environment. The configuration file contains the following content:
