NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 is a standards-compliant, cross-platform, highly scalable, fault-tolerant, and high-performance directory services solution. This guide provides information on tuning your eDirectory environment for improved performance.
Tuning for performance is a complex activity. It requires understanding of both the eDirectory and operating system's subsystems. It involves monitoring the system to identify bottlenecks and fixing them one at a time. Many a times resources are limited and tuning is confined to eDirectory and the operating system.
The guide is divided into the following sections:
Prerequisites: Read this section before attempting any kind of tuning and then proceed to the other sections.
eDirectory Subsystems: This chapter describes primary subsystems that influence eDirectory performance.
Analyzing System Bottlenecks: This chapter describes various system resources and their influence on eDirectory performance.
Tuning eDirectory Subsystems: This chapter describes how to analyze and tune eDirectory under various conditions and environments.
eDirectory Configuration: This chapter describes how to configure various tunable parameters.
To increase the overall performance of your eDirectory environment, eDirectory 8.8 SP8 provides additional parameters for optimizing eDirectory background processes. For more information about the new parameters, see TID 7015361.
