Just a heads-up, I'm going to merge the LDAP caching patch later today,
Caching is enabled by default and some metrics will be visible in the
Apache log when the server is in debug mode, like:
ipa: DEBUG: FINAL: Hits 1 Misses 3 Size 2
There is a very simple log parser to determine cache usage in
contrib/cachelog if you want to check on how much/if the layer helps.
Let me know if you see anything really odd happen.
To disable the cache add ldap_cache=False to /etc/ipa/server.conf and
