Oracle Internet Directory (OID) is an LDAP v3 Directory Server that has multi-threaded, multi-process, multi-instance process architecture with Oracle database as the directory store.
BENCHMARK WORKLOAD DESCRIPTION
Five test scenarios were executed in this benchmark - each test scenario performing a different type of LDAP operation. The key metrics are throughput -- the number of operations completed per second, and latency -- the time it took in milliseconds to complete an operation.
TEST SCENARIOS & RESULTS
1. LDAP Search operation : search for and retrieve specific entries from the directory
In this test scenario, each LDAP search operation matches a single unique entry. Each Search operation results in the lookup of an entry in such a way that no client looks up the same entry twice and no two clients lookup the same entry, and all entries are looked-up randomly.
2. LDAP Add operation : add entries, their object classes, attributes and values to the directory
In this test scenario, 16 concurrent LDAP clients added 500,000 entries of object class InetOrgPerson with 21 attributes to the directory.
3. LDAP Compare operation : compare a given attribute value to the attribute value in a directory entry
In this test scenario, userpassword attribute was compared. That is, each LDAP Compare operation matches user password of a user.
4. LDAP Modify operation : add, delete or replace attributes for entries
In this test scenario, 50 concurrent LDAP clients updated a unique entry each time and a total of 50 million entries were updated. Attribute that is being modified was not indexed
5. LDAP Authentication operation : authenticates the credentials of a user
In this test scenario, 1000 concurrent LDAP clients authenticated 50 million users.
BONUS: LDAP Mixed operations Test
In this test scenario, 1000 LDAP clients were used to perform LDAP Search, Bind and Modify operations concurrently.
Operation breakdown (load distribution): Search: 65%. Bind: 30%. Modify: 5%
