I'm a Keystone core dev.  I often find myself in the position of 
thinking about Keystone Performance  without real numbers to back it up.

Can people with "real live clouds" provide some insight?  Here's what 
I'd like to know?

How big is your Keystone data set?  How many
active tokens

1.  UUID vs PKI tokens?
2.  Apache HTTPD vs Eventlet:

Which do you run?  Do you see performance issues with either?

How many token revocation events are you seeing?  How long is your token 
revocation list getting?  Which events dominate (change password, revoke 

Do you run the SQL token backend?  If so, how often do you clean out the 
expired tokens?

Non performance related questions:

Are you using the V3 API?  If not, what is keeping you on V2?
Do you use trusts?  Do you even understand what they provide?
Do you use SSL or Kerberos?  Do you want to, but find something is 
keeping you from doing so?

If you have answers to these questions, but feel uncomfortable posting 
them publically, please send them to me directly and I will anonymize 
the answers.  Don't feel like you need to answer everything if you have 
something to contribute in just one topic.

P.S. We know about the shortcomings of the Identity operations (list 
users in particular).  Those will be addressed separately.
