MoveIt! Benchmarking issue

Hi all,

I have faced a problem when trying to apply the benchmarking to my robot (UR5). Initially I followed the tutorial which is on Fanuc and it works because you don't have to create packages or launch files since everything is already there. I copied the "benchmarks" folder which contains -> examples -> demo1.yaml and demo_fanuc.launch (and I modified them properly to adapt to my robot). After that I was able to connect to database and saving scene and query. Everything works until I run the benchmark [roslaunch moveit_ros_benchmarks demo_fanuc.launch]. The error is the following:

[ INFO] [1527089331.704758889]: Loaded queries successfully

Has someone faced this issue before or was able to make the benchmarking for his own robot?

My Ubuntu version: 16.04 ROS Kinetic

Well, actually I'm working with this benchmark tool with my ROBOTIS arm (manipulator-h), and discussing with a colleague with think that this error is not an error itself, but simply the code finishing your work (the benchmark) and shutting down. We analyzed different scenarios (queries) in Planner Arena and present differents results. If you find a solution to this or keeped please let know but for know I think that this is normal

@kaike_wesley_reis Is there any way to apply MoveIt benchmarking to your own robots?

I solved this by installing Moveit from source in the /src folder of my catkin workspace

Can you show your output for your result? I tried your solution but the actual moveit kinetic version doesn't have the moveit_ros_benchmarks (different from apt-get that contain this package)
