Randomize ldap_connection_expire_timeout either with a configuration option

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Having a large environment (like compute cluster) where it is likely all nodes are brought up at the same time results in their LDAP connection to expire (ie ldap_connection_expire_timeout) at the same time causing a spike in traffic/load to the LDAP servers.
  • Add ldap_connection_expire_offset to allow a random offset between 0 and configured value to be added to ldap_connection_expire_timeout
