#3993 closed defect (fixed)

Uncalibrated reports of the amount of time required to generate an RSA key appear in the documentation

Launchpad Bug:


docs/performance.rst, docs/specifications/dirnodes.rst, and a comment in src/allmydata/client.py all make a claim about how long it takes to generate a 2048 bit RSA keypair.

The claims are without reference to a date or reference piece of hardware. They're all also quite old and probably miss the real cost to users in 2023 by at least an order of magnitude.

Refresh them and add some frame of reference.
