This configuration parameter specifies the number of objects to obtain in a single LDAP request. You can use this parameter to optimize the number of objects to suit your environment.
The parameter value must be a positive integer. For example:
With this parameter, there is a trade-off here between speed and memory usage as well as bandwidth and latency. As you increase the number of objects included in an LDAP request, you may improve the overall performance by decreasing the number of connections to Active Directory and reducing the overall demand on the server, but you increase the RAM used by the agent. If you decrease the number of objects included in an LDAP request, you may reduce overall performance because of the additional network traffic, but decrease the memory used by the agent.
On faster networks, you can safely retrieve a small number of objects. On slower networks or when retrieving information for large groups (for example, groups with more than 1000 users), you may want to increase the value for this parameter.
