CPU spikes to 100% on Domino LDAP task when there are many nested groups
Mon, Aug 25th 2014 8:03a   Kenio Carvalho
This issue is fixed in 9.0.1 Fix Pack 2 via the new INI parameter described below. Fix Details: SPR# MJON9GQHLL - Fixes potential performance degradation in LDAP search when there are many nested groups. This fix introduces the new ini: LDAP_COMPLEX_FILTER. When this ini is set to 1, the code path for the fix for SPR# CAHT959LQG is enabled and the performance degradation could result. Setting this ini to 0, disables the code path and no performance degradation will be seen.
