Oracle Internet Directory Tuning and Configuration
Oracle Internet Directory (OID) is Oracle's LDAPv3 Directory Server that is highly scalable, available and manageable. OID has multi-threaded, multi-process, multi instance process architecture with Oracle Database as the directory store. This unique physical architecture enables OID to be deployed on several hardware architectures including SMP, NUMA and Cluster hardware. OID physical architecture enables linear performance scalability with hardware resources and numerous High Availability configurations that is unmatched in the industry. The out of box OID configuration is not optimal for most production or test deployments. It is hence imperative that some basic tuning and configuration changes are performed after OID installation to achieve optimal performance and availability. This paper intends to provide a quick reference for such tuning and configuration changes.
