pine

A benchmark utility to make requests to a REST API.

Pine makes requests to URLs a bunch of times and computes some statistics about how those requests were responded to. This is ideally useful to run on every change to your codebase so you can identify changes early.

Pine isn’t a load testing tool. If you’re trying to solve C10K, this won’t help you. Pine (currently) runs requests serially.

Documentation

Documentation is available at http://pine.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

Installation

On Python 3.6, pip install pine will do it.

On Python 3.7, there is an additional step required before running the same command. Until PyYAML supports Python 3.7 in a released version, you will need to install PyYAML from GitHub:

pip install git+https://github.com/yaml/pyyaml.git
pip install pine

https://github.com/briancurtin/pine/issues/1 and https://github.com/yaml/pyyaml/issues/126 are tracking this issue.

Usage

pine -c myconfig.yaml is the simplest way to begin. This will run your configuration and output the results to stdout. If you’d like to write the output to a file, -o myoutputfile.json will do it. If you’d like to specify a particular run ID, other than the default of the current timestamp, -i 32a63ab will do it. That’s useful for tracking the commit hash of what you’re testing.

Run pine -h for complete details.

Configuration

Pine uses YAML for configuration. See conf/example.yaml for an example.

Output

Pine writes its results in JSON, either to stdout or the path you specified in -o. It looks like the following:

{"results": [
    {"times": [1.580882219500005, 1.8884545513215, 1.52546876846],
     "timeouts": 0, "failures": [], "name": "get_all_things",
     "description": "Get all of the things",
     "mean": 1.668359371049998,
     "median": 1.580882219500005,
     "stdev": 0.0969358463985873},
    {"times": [0.4894684654656654, 0.508042131499991, 1.054654684684],
     "timeouts": 0, "failures": [], "name": "get_one_thing",
     "description": "Get one thing",
     "mean": 0.856881387399993,
     "median": 0.508042131499991,
     "stdev": 0.0646515285845596},
 ],
