Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Specifies the maximum length of time that that the results of a query to an LDAP directory

Specifies the maximum length of time that that the results of a query to an LDAP directory, which has been marked for group expansion, will be cached for use in building nameslists. Upon expiration, the cached entries will be considered invalid and the creation of a nameslist will result in queries being sent to the LDAP directory. This addresses the situation, prior to Domino 6, in which the cache did not detect changes that occurred in LDAP directories that had been marked for group expansion, thus serving up stale data which had been cached from those directories indefinitely.

    0 - Updates to the LDAP directory are not detected and the group cache is flushed based only on updates to those Domino Directory(ies) that are enabled for group expansion.

    integer - This value is interpreted as the lifetime of information from remote LDAP directories in 1/100ths of a second. Thus if this value is set to 6000 then the information from the LDAP server will only be considered valid for 1 minute. If the LDAP server was marked for group expansion in the DA database this would mean that group cache would be considered stale after one minute.

Note Settings below 6000 (3000 if the LDAP server task is running) are probably not useful as these servers are subject to a 1 minute (30 seconds if the LDAP server task is running) threshold and should be avoided.

Default value:
60 minutes [60*60*100 (360000)]



UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
