Bug Description

The puppet module WSGI default values a basically useless and just asking for pain.

The WSGI threads behaves as cPhython threads, so they are suffering from the GIL related issues, and usually performer worse when you run more than 1 cpu intensive task at the same time.

The apache itself shields the workers from slow clients, unless you have very slow backed services (mysql) or very slow internal network, keystone will be cpu intensive.

Devstack also uses $subject style, so if you are using a different one just walking on less used path.

On a 8 CPU thread machine the WSGIDaemonProcess line needs to look like:

WSGIDaemonProcess keystone_admin display-name=keystone-admin group=keystone processes=8 threads=1 user=keystone

The treads MUST not be $::processorcount, it needs to be 1 by default.

summary: - Set the WSGI threads=1 snd processes/workers to $::processorcount by
+ Set the WSGI threads=1 And processes/workers to $::processorcount by
