Summary0006874: investigate performance issues of wire gateway API
DescriptionCurrently the requests from the exchange to the bank's wire gateway API cause high CPU load (seen as load on uwsgi).

We should investigate where this is coming from.
TagsNo tags attached.

According to one first investigation, the problem lies in the Django's authentication system.
Possibly the password hashing slows things down. The problematic routine is "django.contrib.auth.authenticate()", called from "basic_auth()". Basically by commenting basic_auth() out, the high CPU usage disappears (*).

(*) there is only one high peak from uwsgi, just upon launching the bank.

=> pybank will eventually be rolled into LibEuFin, where we won't use the django auth system
