Discussion:
OpenLDAP as a Caching Proxy server
(too old to reply)

Hi,

I've been trying to setup a caching proxy server with OpenLDAP for quite
a long time, and it seems, from what I can see right now, that the proxy
stuff is working (I can log on on a server that points to the proxy as
its LDAP server), but the caching stuff doesn't seem to work at all.
EVERY request I'm doing is transferred to the AD (the real LDAP server)
behind the proxy LDAP.

Here's how my pcache module is set. Not too sure though, how to setup
pcacheTemplates. Maybe that my error. One thing to note is that no
database is even created in /var/tmp/cache directory, as I would expect.


moduleload pcache.la

overlay pcache
pcache bdb 100000 3 1000 60
directory /var/tmp/cache
cachesize 150
index objectClass eq
index sAMAccountName eq
pcacheMaxQueries 100
pcacheAttrset 0 objectClass name objectSid
pcacheAttrset 1 objectClass sAMAccountName
pcacheAttrset 2 *
pcacheTemplate (&(member=)(objectClass=)(name=)) 0 60
pcacheTemplate (objectClass=) 0 60
pcacheTemplate (&(objectSid=)(objectClass=)(name=)) 0 60
pcacheTemplate
(&(?sAMAccountName=)(?objectClass=)(sAMAccountName=)(objectSid=)) 2 60
pcacheTemplate (sAMAccountName=) 2 60
pcachePersist true

Hi,
I've been trying to setup a caching proxy server with OpenLDAP for
quite a long time, and it seems, from what I can see right now, that
the proxy stuff is working (I can log on on a server that points to
the proxy as its LDAP server), but the caching stuff doesn't seem to
work at all. EVERY request I'm doing is transferred to the AD (the
real LDAP server) behind the proxy LDAP.
Here's how my pcache module is set. Not too sure though, how to setup
pcacheTemplates. Maybe that my error. One thing to note is that no
database is even created in /var/tmp/cache directory, as I would expect.
moduleload pcache.la
overlay pcache
pcache bdb 100000 3 1000 60
directory /var/tmp/cache
cachesize 150
index objectClass eq
index sAMAccountName eq
pcacheMaxQueries 100
pcacheAttrset 0 objectClass name objectSid
pcacheAttrset 1 objectClass sAMAccountName
pcacheAttrset 2 *
pcacheTemplate (&(member=)(objectClass=)(name=)) 0 60
pcacheTemplate (objectClass=) 0 60
pcacheTemplate (&(objectSid=)(objectClass=)(name=)) 0 60
pcacheTemplate
(&(?sAMAccountName=)(?objectClass=)(sAMAccountName=)(objectSid=)) 2 60
pcacheTemplate (sAMAccountName=) 2 60
pcachePersist true
The pcache Template has to match the search filter and only the
referenced attribute set is cached.

Hi,
I've been trying to setup a caching proxy server with OpenLDAP for
quite a long time, and it seems, from what I can see right now, that
the proxy stuff is working (I can log on on a server that points to
the proxy as its LDAP server), but the caching stuff doesn't seem to
work at all. EVERY request I'm doing is transferred to the AD (the
real LDAP server) behind the proxy LDAP.
Here's how my pcache module is set. Not too sure though, how to
setup pcacheTemplates. Maybe that my error. One thing to note is
that no database is even created in /var/tmp/cache directory, as I
would expect.
moduleload pcache.la
overlay pcache
pcache bdb 100000 3 1000 60
directory /var/tmp/cache
cachesize 150
index objectClass eq
index sAMAccountName eq
pcacheMaxQueries 100
pcacheAttrset 0 objectClass name objectSid
pcacheAttrset 1 objectClass sAMAccountName
pcacheAttrset 2 *
pcacheTemplate (&(member=)(objectClass=)(name=)) 0 60
pcacheTemplate (objectClass=) 0 60
pcacheTemplate (&(objectSid=)(objectClass=)(name=)) 0 60
pcacheTemplate
(&(?sAMAccountName=)(?objectClass=)(sAMAccountName=)(objectSid=)) 2
60 pcacheTemplate (sAMAccountName=) 2 60
pcachePersist true
The pcache Template has to match the search filter and only the
referenced attribute set is cached.
Additional info: you may run slapd in debugging mode pcache.

Got it. In fact, it seem that the implementation of pcache on CentOS is
just not working. A lot of strange behaviors. I did reinstall on Ubuntu
14.04 LTS, and it started working. One thing, though. It seems that some
attributes don't get cached, despite the fact that they are in the
pcacheAttrset referenced. Maybe because I'm using rwm as well to map
some attributes? Then, which fields should be in the pcacheAttrset? The
original attribute or the mapped one ? For example, I'm mapping
sAMAccountName to uid, and it tells me that uid is not in the cache.

Tks,
