It is true that Poorly written LDAP[?] code can really affect your Portal
have seen it a few times:
A programmer who hadn't had much exposure to LDAP decided it best to do a base level search, for example, using ldapsearch:
ldapsearch -x -b 'dc=suretecsystems,dc=com' '(objectclass=*)' -H ldap[?]://127.0.0.1
he retrieved *everything*, then did all the searching/filtering etc. locally in the client! What's the point of a Directory Server!?!
Our partners Symas have also talked about similar encounters, mainly with Sendmail.
It all comes down to the level of LDAP understanding a programmer has.
Or could it actually be the Directory Server implementation, namely Oracle Internet Directory (OID)?
I know OpenLDAP wouldn't slow an app down like this, because it's very fast..very very fast
