What about potential customers? I've been evaluating your platform and just be completely frustrated with 3 days wasted trying to solve these performance issues.
I'm using gunicorn with python, and if I use the sync worker the request queue easily hits 10 seconds and nothing works; if I switch to gevent or eventlet, new-relic tells me that redis is taking the same time stuck getting a value. This is using the same code in my current provider that works just fine with eventlet and scales well.
To add insult to injury, adding dynos actually degrades performance.
I'd be really interested to see some public information resulting from debugging Python apps. We're holding pretty steady, but see a fairly constant stream of timeouts due, apparently, to variance in response times. To be sure, we're working on that. But, in the meantime, our experiments with gevent and Heroku have been less than inspiring.
