Did it happen? Some interesting output?

I met up with the novomok (was that right?) folks at the booth at the
time and discussed their work on an OBS backend worker pool. Others
than that I met Jan-Simon after my talk. Seems like the (contributed)
LDAP feature needs some more testing to improve its performance.

Yes, I recently had a brief look at the LDAP features in OBS and I think
there is some room for improvement wrt to LDAP support in OBS. E.g.
currently for each api request a new LDAP connection is opened and closed
again when the request finishes.

There was a commit from Vivian which fixed this (if I understood the comment


This can be pretty expensive (especially
when TLS/SSL is used), so a first improvement could be achieved by
keeping the LDAP connection open persistently.
Adrian and I provided some feedback to the original developers of that
feature. I am not exactly sure if somebody is currently working on
improvements in that area.
