Getting Slow Response From OID Server for One-Level LDAP Searches (Doc ID 1428908.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 08, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 9.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Some LDAP searches take a long time to respond, others return results as expected. This may be seen as a performance issue in other products or applications that use OID, in this case Oracle Access Manager (OAM) admin console was extremely slow to respond for all links.

The search that was getting the slow response was identified in the OID Server log with debugging enabled.

Using the same search filter and only changing the scope of the search shows very poor performance for a one-level search.
