btw even after the performance improvements we did in 1.14 we an issue where even parsing the entries takes too long. What we did in 1.14 was that if the entries didn't change compared to what is already in the cache, then we skipped saving the full entry again just to bump the timestamp. Making the parsing faster is planned for the next version. (btw there was a bug where on upgrade, this new performance improvement didn't take effect for objects that were already cached. Removing the cache is a simple workaround and it's something we should fix soon in the code..) -- Manage your subscription for the Freeipa-users mailing list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users Go to http://freeipa.org for more info on the project
