I am using crowd apache connector for SVN SSO with crowd.
The SSO configuration is working fine and I can see it from browser as well as IDE/Tortoise SVN client etc.
AuthName "Atlassian Crowd"
CrowdAppName <SVN APP NAME>
CrowdAppPassword <SVN APP PWD>
CrowdURL https://<CROWD HOST>:9443/crowd/
CrowdCreateSSO off # Improves performance when using Subversion clients that don't store cookies
We do have many repos and each repo had its own acl with list of users defined.
We can reuse the same files for authorization as well, however, we are having performance issues. e.g. it used to take 2 sec, now it is taking 40 sec.
Is there any setting to control that e.g. cache data or not to go to crowd for every request etc?
You have two options to control the cache behavior, which are documented in Integrating Crowd with Apache:
The maximum number of seconds that a response from Crowd will be cached by the Apache Crowd connector.
The maximum number of entries cached at any time by the Apache Crowd connector. If set to 0, caching is disabled.
The last column denotes the default value, and a note further down on that page confirms that caching should already be enabled by default:
- If the
CrowdCacheMaxEntriessetting is missing or set to a non-zero value, then requests to Crowd are cached in order to increase performance. This means that changes to passwords, group membership and session expiry in Crowd may not be reflected immediately in user access.
Given your scenario comprises many repos, you probably need to ensure that
CrowdCacheMaxEntries is sufficiently large to avoid items being purged from the cache early and actually yield them to be cached for
I guess I had to add those cache options outside of location tag of apache. However, even after doing that, performance didn't improve much. What I have is crowd configuration in place, and not for each individual repo. Each individual repo location, I have specified acl file. Not sure if that makes any difference..
