The relaxation towards a thermal state of a boost-invariant strongly coupled non-Abelian plasma is investigated using a holographic approach. Boundary sourcing is employed to drive the system out-of-equilibrium. Thermalization is analyzed for the fully dynamical system using local and nonlocal observables. A dependence of the thermalization time on the size of the nonlocal probes is found. based on JHEP 07(2015) 053 and arXiv:1603.08849
