Install from PyPI
You will need some packages that are required for building different python libraries:
libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev python-dev zlib1g-dev
You will also need a GNU make for building them. In Ubuntu you can install a
build-essential package. You should also install pip if you don't have it.
Full command for Ubuntu looks like this:
sudo apt-get install python-pip build-essential libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev python-dev zlib1g-dev
You can do similar thing for your distribution. After you've installed all the packages, it is easy to install the Tank itself:
sudo pip install yandextank
Remember that if you want to use
phantom as a load generator you should install it separately. On Ubuntu you can do that by adding our PPA and installing
phantom-ssl packages. On other distros you will maybe need to build it from sources.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yandex-load/main && sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install phantom phantom-ssl
Report plugin is a distinct project. You can found it here.
