Maximizing Performance of the Sun Java System Directory Server

This article describes a performance analysis for a scenario regarding the LDAP server component of the Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition. The primary complaint was timeouts from the Linux clients. On the Solaris Operating System, clients would access LDAP through nscd, which maintained a persistent connection. The Linux clients, on the other hand, would use an open/query/close methodology. The author describes tests, evaluations, alternative approaches, and a script that might also be useful.

Multilingual Versions: Sun Java System Directory Server 6.0 as an LDAP Naming Service

Here are instructions for deploying Sun Java System Directory Server as a naming service for UNIX clients that run AIX 5.3, Red Hat Linux Release 4 Update 4, or the Solaris 8, 9, or 10 Operating System. Spanish, French, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese translations are now available for both Part 1 (Installation and Configuration) and Part 2 (Client Configurations for the Solaris OS).
