Sockpuppet Detection: Parallelise requests to Mediawiki API
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Now that we have the service performing very responsively for most simple queries, we need to optimise for some of our worst cases - in this case users with high numbers of edits. This can cause a large number of similarities and overlaps that need to be tested, which in turn cause large numbers of requests to the mediawiki API, one for each overlapping user. Currently these requests are done sequentially, we need to parallelise these requests.
