Connection stays open for half an hour.

After I am back and i want to browse the tree it freezes for some time ~30 seconds.

I would like to avoid this freeze.

I would like to have a setting on connections "edit properties" screen.it could be a field for ldif statement and a field for time in seconds to fire that ldif periodically to keep connection alive.

Hi Aurimas,

Could you be a little more precise?

How long the connection stays opened, "a long time" is pretty vague.
10 minutes, 10 hours, 10 days?

Same thing for the "revive time".
Are talking about milliseconds, seconds, minutes?

i think that some ping like simple search or some periodical ldif specified by user could be a good thing it could be not mandatory and left for users own risk, but it could help me and others a lot.

I am using apache directory studio 1.5.2
You should switch to 1.5.3 :)

There is a very annoing issue with connections. If I leave connection open
for a long time open it gots frozen and it takes a long time to revive it.
Plain normal.

Maybe it is possible to add some feature to connection properties like
"keepAlive" or something so that it is alway very quick to respond.
sadly, there is nothing such as a 'keep-alive' request in LDAP. We could send a search for the rootDSE periodically, but frankly, considering that LDAP is a connected protocol, that means we will potentially have thousands of requests sent to the server just to deal with this problem. Not sure it worth the effort... (IMHO, of course)
