CA Directory introduced (in release 12.5) a configuration setting to improve the performance of a router DSA in situations where large numbers of bind, compare and search requests are occurring. We wanted to make sure that this capability was explained so the team recently produced a performance evaluation report of the benefits of this setting. Attached you will find this report which describes how the testing was done and the conclusion regarding the optimal settings. Your personal performance gains may vary so we suggest executing your own testing if you desire to use this feature and see what benefits your environment may achieve.
Our internal testing showed that in some cases the throughput increased 100% by using just a few DSP links configured on the router. We hope you will find this information valuable and appreciate your feedback!
