 6. Optimizing Authentication with a Cache

Once you have configured third-party authentication, you should enable caching. Without a cache of LDAP responses, your Zenoss server must repeatedly query the configured LDAP server or servers for user, group and authentication information. The following steps describe the process of setting up caching of LDAP responses.

  1. Log in to Zenoss as a user with the Manager role.

  2. Navigate to /zport/acl_users/manage in the Web interface. Do this by replacing the end of your URL within the Zenoss Web interface.

  3. Choose RAM Cache Manager from the list of options at top-right.
