    • Lessons learned:
      • Database calls are fast, but there are a lot of calls being made - take great care in using tags (credentials and protocol state)
      • Protocol state is large - leave it to controller to decide what to keep
      • Really hard to understand inside the KMS - what's happening and getting metrics out.
      • Caching is hard (smile) - self-inflicted wound
      • Current issue - not understanding all the calls to "SELECT item" from secrets storage.
