    • Continuing to learn about performance/storage impacts of using Aries protocols and non-secrets (metadata) interface.
    • Lessons learned:
      • Latest - adding instrumentation into the agent for metrics - where is time spent? Generating cool graphs
      • Found that latest bottleneck seems be processing/messaging, so focusing on that.
      • Discovered that the "tag-policy" is effectively useless - searching vs. accessing.  Removing, despite space savings, probably pulling from indy-sdk.
