Operational Affinity Algorithm for Cache Optimization

By using the operational affinity algorithm for load balancing, searches from the same client to the same entry can always be distributed to the same data source. When a data source responds to a request, the targeted entry is stored in the cache. If the same data source responds repeatedly to the same request, the data source can benefit from using the cached data.

For an example of how configure the operational affinity algorithm for cache optimization, see To Configure Operational Affinity Algorithm for Cache Optimization in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.1 Administration Guide.
