Experiencing some performance issues in our SDM implementation.

noticed that when we are having such issues the current locks are very high.


Release : 17.3

Component : SDM - Web UI and Performance


Performance problem came from integrations.  Third party tool was using SOAP to exchange information with SDM and this was the problem. This system was performing thousands of logins every day, among other heavy operations. 


Migrated from SOAP to REST in order to prevent that system to login multiples times, now we are using the same Access Key instead.
