You can configure the Directory Proxy Server to use batched transactions in both simple and entry-balanced configurations. The batched transactions feature supports two implementations: the standard LDAP transactions per RFC 5805 and the PingDirectoryProxy Server proprietary implementation, known as the multi-update extended operation. Batched transactions can be used through the Directory Proxy Server in both simple and entry-balanced configurations although only in cases in which all operations within the transaction request may be processed within the same backend server and within the same Berkeley DB JE backend. Batched transactions cannot be processed across multiple servers or multiple Directory Server backends.
The multi-update extended operation makes it possible to submit multiple updates in a single request. These updates may be processed either as individual operations or as a single atomic unit. When the Directory Proxy Server receives a Start Batched Transaction request, it will queue all associated operations in memory until the End Batched Transaction request is received with the intention to commit, at which point the set of operations is sent as a single multi-update extended request to the Directory Server.
Add, delete, modify, modify DN, and password modify extended operations may be included in the set of operations processed during a batch transaction. The operations are processed sequentially in the order in which they were included in the extended request. If an error occurs while processing an operation in the set, then the server can be instructed to continue the processing or to cancel any remaining operations. If the operations are not cancelled, you can configure the server to process all operations as a single atomic unit.
