Vault in HA mode (3 PODs) - v 1.5.2 using DynamoDB (AWS) =*
- Dynamically configures read/write based on traffic
K8S 1.18 Self-Managed (AWS)
We have noticed a fairly high latency on using encryption in transit - have tried performance test using jmeter towards our backend (which in turns uses Vault for transit/encryption) and results were pretty bad.
Tried single calls using vault CLI and majority was between 1-2 seconds though with few going as far as 5 seconds.
vault write test-transit/encrypt/service plaintext=(base64 <<< “4111 1111 1111 1111”)
Now that it seems isolated to Vault, need some help as to further investigate/find the bottleneck leading to this. thanks /Pedro
