Peter, Thank you so much for reply.

I am not much familiar with python.

I have executed the commands mentioned in your reply.

Now it's failing with following error. Do I have put thrift.jar in  JAVA CLASSPATH.
----------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "stress.py", line 36, in <module>
    from thrift.transport import TTransport
ImportError: No module named thrift.transport
---------------------------------------------------

Thanks,
SSam

Assuming you have the thrift compiler installed, something like (from
memory, not tested):

cd contrib/py_stress
thrift --gen py:new ../../interface/cassandra.thrift
export PYTHONPATH=$(pwd)/gen-py
python stress.py
