Entry aggregation results in the following:
Optimizes queries to secondary data view
Searches for secondary data view first when required
Handles large result sets (VLV control) better
Requests Grouping to secondary source
JDBC data view now supports Date and Blob.
Directory Proxy Server now uses a new logging engine implementation that performs more efficiently on multi-core systems.
New criteria based on LDAP groups
Management of the maximum throughput
New type of data view to address more use cases, for example, company mergers.
An enhanced regex distribution algorithm is added, as described in Configuring Pattern Matching Distribution Algorithm in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Administration Guide.
To optimize the performance of searches of a join data view, Directory Proxy Server makes use of Virtual List View (vlv) indexes. It helps you to avoid the scenario where search hits the size limits due to the lots of entries from one data source and very few from the others. To use VLV indexes, see Browsing Index in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Reference.
