For best performance, configure the Directory Server to fully cache the DIT in the backend database cache. Directory Server configuration assumes this scenario. For databases too large to fit in memory, other options are available:
  • Configure the server for a disk-bound data set (when the database is stored on an SSD, this configuration yields server performance that is comparable to a fully-cached scenario).
  • Use uncached attributes and/or entries as described in the following section.
  • Use a Directory Proxy Server in an entry-balancing deployment, which allows all data to be cached in a partitioned environment.
