The Directory Proxy Server can prime the global indexes at startup from the backend directory server or from a peer proxy server, preferably one that resides on the same LAN or subnet.
When priming occurs locally, you can avoid WAN bandwidth consumption and reduce the
processing load on the directory servers in the
topology. You can specify the data sources for the index priming and the order in which
priming occurs from these sources. Use the
prime-index-source property to
specify the sources of data, either
file or some
combination of the two.
The order you specify is the order in which priming is attempted from these sources. Priming is most efficient if the source server is on the same local network as the Directory Proxy Server.
For example, if you specify
prime-index-source:file,ds, priming is
performed from the
global-index data file created from the previous run of
the directory servers. If the entire global index
has been primed previously from a startup or reloaded-index directory servers source, the contents of the global
index are written to disk periodically with the
