The Sametime Connect clients connect to the Community Services multiplexer computer, not the Sametime server. This configuration frees the Sametime server from the burden of managing the live client connections; the multiplexer machine is dedicated to this task.
The Community Services multiplexer maintains a single IP connection to each Sametime server in the cluster.
This parameter increases the number of connections from the Sametime server to the LDAP server(s) specified in stconfig.nsf. The default setting is set to one (1) connection. This setting should never be changed.
This parameter defines the duration (in minutes) to wait between keep-alive messages that are sent on idle LDAP connections. 0 means no keep-alive. A keep alive will only be sent when a respray is not scheduled for that minute.
This parameter defines the maximum number of requests that can be in flight on the network to the LDAP server before we send out new requests to the LDAP server
This parameter defines the total maximum number of requests that can be sent to the LDAP server. After reaching the number specified by ST_DB_LDAP_PENDING_LOW, the Sametime server will send out requests until this value is reached. After reaching this value, the Sametime server will wait for responses from the LDAP server.
This parameter will define how often (in minutes) the connection to the LDAP server should be dropped and then re-established. This parameter is very important in load balanced or rotating DNS scenarios, as it allows the Sametime server to drop the current connection instead of continuously trying to connect to a non-responsive LDAP server.
Maximum number of entries that may be returned in a single search when searching for people or groups. Default is 1000.
Spread the load of a large user population among multiple servers.
Reduce network usage and improve server performance when you have significant user populations in remote or distributed locations.
Securely extend meetings conducted on a Sametime server inside your network firewall to a Sametime server deployed outside the firewall in your network DMZ. This arrangement allows Internet users to participate in meetings with users on your corporate intranet without compromising network security.
