Sovrin-Node is started via the ubuntu service file
However the python interpreter is not started in Optimise mode it is running in the default 'DEBUG' mode
The entry point python script should be executed with the '-O' option which will ensure it is running in optimised mode.
This will have 2 side effects:
- Strip all assert statements. This trades defense against corrupt program state for speed.
- Strip all docstrings. So a wee bit of saving on memory requirment
So when triaging we need to consider the bullet # 1, do we want to play safe. Asserts are probably going still crash the program.
