Thanks for submitting the feature request.  I don't have any access to the
directory server as it is managed by another group, so I have to use what's
there.  I will check with the group that manages it to see if they can do
anything with indexing.

Thanks,

Travis

I have opened a feature request for this under
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=55243 since it may be
useful.

Have you looked wether indexes on your ldap server can speed up things?
