Back-asyncmeta Status Update

Friday 20th October, from 11.20 to 12

The asynchronous meta backend was initially developed around 2015 and presented at LDAPCon 2015. It was intended as an asynchronous version of the meta backend with some changes in functionality as requested by a customer.

Since then, back-asyncmeta has been thoroughly tested with high traffic load and different network conditions, and some changes in architecture and configuration have been introduced to ensure its smooth operation. This talk will describe the problems faced when testing back-asyncmeta in a real environment, and the changes made to solve these problems.
