Install Python 3.7 or later, if you don’t already have it.
$ pip3 install locust
Validate your installation:
$ locust -V locust 2.12.2.dev6 from /usr/local/lib/python3.10/site-packages/locust (python 3.10.6)
Now it is time to create your first test!
If you have any issues installing, check the wiki for possible solutions.
If you need the latest and greatest version of Locust and cannot wait for the next proper release, you can install a dev build like this:
$ pip3 install -U --pre locust
Pre-release builds are published every time a branch/PR is merged into master.
