Ldap driver does not do unbind when exiting


I have a client that has got a complaint from a supplier that the Ldap
driver (no change log) does not quit cleanly, there is no unbind when it
is finished.
The Ldap service that is read is DirX, only reads are of interest.

I'm sorry that I dont have more information at this stage but is the
unbind expected.
Should it be expected after each search in that case or only when the
driver is shut down.

Thanks fon any thoughts

Re: Ldap driver does not do unbind when exiting

Binding for every operation is performance suicide, and there is no reason
in the LDAP world to do that kind of thing, so of course the driver does
multiples out of the box. It is configurable, though, just in case your
supplier has (as it seems to) issues, and I believe the default is 500:

A.1.5 - Driver Options
Maximum number of operations for a single bind:
Specify the number of LDAP operations after which the driver reconnects to
the LDAP server. Ch ange the default value to a large value if the driver
does frequent binds.

Can your supplier give any rational reason for the complaint?

Good luck.
