This gatling script allow you to qualify and stress an Pelias Server

The Testing scenario is the following:

  • Each user will randomly select a region in the regions.csv file (round-robin strategy)
  • In this region, the user will randomly choose one positions (lat/lng)
  • Then, the user will request and get the address at this positions


Scala plugin for IntelliJ platform also helps.

How to use

This script has been tested and approved by both Gatling and Gatling Frontline solutions.

  • Clone the project git clone
  • Set your environment properties in {projectRoot}/src/main/resources Properties are server.url, simulation.users.count...
  • Browse the project root and execute the following commands ./gradlew shadowJar to build the project
  • Now you can generate seeds for all simulated users with this command GENERATE_SEEDS=true ./bin/pelias-server-stress. Skip this step if you want to use a custom seeds file or keep the previous one and produce the exact same test
  • In order to run the stress test use ./bin/pelias-server-stress.

You can override properties with environment variables when you use the script pelias-server-stress.

Available arguments are:

  • oa or openaddresses: Run the openaddresses scenario. This needs openaddresses data (OA_FILE).
  • pip or pip-service: Run the PIP service scenario. This needs REGION_FILE.
  • reverse (default): Run the reverse geocoding scenario. This needs REGION_FILE.

Available environments are:

  • GATLING_PROPERTIES: Path to your custom property file
  • SERVER_URL: Set your custon server URL
  • REGIONS_FILE: Where your region file is
  • OA_FILE: Where your openaddresses file is
  • SEEDS_FILE: Where your seeds file
  • AUTOCOMPLETE: Set it to true if you wants autocomplete endpoint instead of search (only for openaddresses scenario)
  • USERS_COUNT: Set users count for your simulation (and number of seeds)
  • USERS_RAMP_TIME: Set the ramp time for your users
  • GENERATE_SEEDS: When not empty, will generate only seeds
  • AUTO_GENERATE_SEEDS: When not empty, will generate seed and run the simulation

A docker image is also available docker build -t jawg/pelias-server-stress . or docker pull jawg/pelias-server-streess

Simple openaddresses run: docker run -ti --rm -e OA_FILE=/path/to/oa.csv jawg/pelias-server-streess oa
