The post mentions Falcon at the end. At Cronitor, I rebuilt our ping tracking endpoint (peaks over 100r/s) with Falcon, breaking it out of Django, and I wrote a blog post about it: https://blog.cronitor.io/scaling-django-breaking-out-not-bre...

Here's a tldr:

  Logging requests to a flat file on a t2.small instance:
  Django:  519.93 trans/sec
  Falcon: 2083.19 trans/sec

I'm confused when you say requests are logged to a flat file, but also requests are sent to SQS (presumably to be processed and eventually hit a centralized log?)

I think perhaps just to remove SQS as a bottleneck for benchmarking purposes?

Correct, but this could probably be more clear.
