Importing an ldif file is a common task that every engineer needs to create a directory service. This is also a task that some engineers need to perform when restoring an instance in their topology. DSEE 7 has introduced new innovations into the code has resulted in 5x improvements in performance.
Wajih Ahmed, this Wednesday, will detail how he used the new F-20's to improve import times using DSEE 7. This improvement results in real measurable time/cost savings. Since these tasks sometimes take place over weekends or during maintenance periods this means engineers will have more time to do other things. We want to know what are they doing with that time?Here is a potential list of activities they might be doing with that extra time:
- Spending time with their families
- Downloading and creating a POC for OpenSSO
- Attending a soccer game for their daughter
- Setting up their Super Bowl pool favoring their favorite team
- Finding cheats to get promoted in HALO ODST.
- Arranging a family movie night
- Learn about Fine Grained Access Control with OpenSSO here
- Writing a blog post on why they should allow dedicated server versions of Modern Warfare 2
- Checking out the IT platform that will manage, capture and deliver the Vancouver Winter Olympics
- Perusing Facebook to find out what is going on with their friends today.
If you have other creative ideas on what engineers should be doing with this extra time that DSEE 7 has given back, please share below. I think everyone should be getting ready for the Olympics so I have included the latest video on the Torch Relay from the Vacouver Winter Olympics site.
