The PingDirectory Server supports static LDAP groups with structural object classes of groupOfNames, groupOfUniqueNames, or groupOfEntries. In general, static groups may be imported without modification.

A FIFO entry cache can be enabled to cache group-to-user mappings, which improves performance when accessing very large entries, though at the expense of greater memory consumption. The PingDirectory Server provides an out-of-the-box FIFO entry cache object for this purpose. This object must be explicitly enabled using dsconfig as described in Using the Entry Cache to Improve the Performace of Large Static Groups.
