Flexible LDAP load balancing

Friday 20th October, from 9.40 to 10.20 AM

With most existing LDAP load balancers that operate on a per connection basis, long-lived client connections are likely to concentrate on a much smaller set of servers than intended, delivering much lower performance a fully efficient system could deliver. We will present a PDU-centric load balancer being built as part of the OpenLDAP project that completely bypasses these issues and provides a fairer load distribution as a result.
