Subject Re: LDAP connection timeout
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2016 23:40:17 GMT
We are using OpenLDAP, but adding the lines into our code seems to have fixed a few infrequent
timeout errors. I don't understand the intracacies of the connections and the pooling, but
it is probably worth waiting until the ldap api updates to the newer version of commons pool
before spending a lot of time diagnosing the problems.

with more knowledge of for instance the real timeout which ApacheDS uses for connections (iff
that is not controlled by some loadbalancer or elasticIp that our OP team has put in front,
I don't know). Maybe timeout should be configurable? But the what should be our recommendation
and advice on how to find optimum? Maybe it doesn't matter :-)

Did not see it.  Prolly best to create a JIRA and attach it there.
