An External LDAP store exhibits poor performance from a custom RSA Certificate Manager API application. Events such as the following are logged:
|Cause||When configured with an external LDAP, by default RSA Certificate Manager performs a dummy search before each transaction to ensure that the connection with the external LDAP Server is open.|
The poor performance issue can be caused when there is a high transaction rate, due to a large number of dummy searches being triggered by RSA Certificate Manager.
To resolve this issue, the keepalive dummy searches of the external LDAP store must be turned off.
If a Certificate Manager API application is being used to issue certificates, it is possible to disable the keepalive search. A directive has been introduced in RSA Certificate Manager 6.7 build 422 to optionally turn off the keepalive search.
To add this directive:
