In today's highly connected world, directory servers are the IT cornerstone of many businesses. These components of the corporate infrastructure are the foundation of authentication systems for internal and, more commonly, external user populations. Managing a directory server with several hundred internal users is not all that difficult. However, managing a directory server with several million external users in all 24 time zones throughout the world is a much more daunting task. IBMAr Security Directory Server software can handle millions of entries, given the right architecture, configuration, and performance tuning. However, that tuning can differ greatly from tuning for a smaller server with only a few hundred thousand entries. Managing and tuning a directory server of this size requires a change in mindset. Tuning and performance must be a focus even before the hardware is ordered. A proactive approach must be taken after installation also, including the pretuning steps to better interface with other products to make installations and migrations successful, and then regular maintenance to keep the directory running smoothly. This IBM RedbooksAr publication is the accumulation of lessons learned in many different real-world environments, including a 24-server fault tolerant configuration with more than 300 million entries. The authors pooled their knowledge and resources to provide the most comprehensive performance view possible, from hardware to software, sort heaps to buffer pools, and table cardinalities. In large directory server deployments, use this document as a guide for how to get the right fit for your environment.Take a closer look at some of the parameter details in the subsections that follow. auto_maint Automatic maintenance configuration parameter.
