Brian goes through the authentication provider settings that affect performance, discusses what each setting does, and shares some guidelines and how these differ from the defaults.

Taking just a little time to change the LDAP authenticator performance related configuration settings from default values to values which are appropriate for your production environment can result in a much faster and more stable system.
