There are two parts to this question.
My apologies, I don't know whether Fisheye or Crucible manages the authentication.
We currently have Jira pulling the LDAP users and groups directly from LDAP hourly, and then Crucible pulls from Jira, also hourly.
Our Jira server is getting hammered and I am wondering if changing Fisheye authentication directly to LDAP would help a little. I tested this and our version of Fisheye 3.0.1 doesn't pull the LDAP group information, just the users. (which is a little annoying). But I digress.
JIRA performance is not greatly affected while being used as an authentication directory, but I recommend you to set Fisheye to authenticate against LDAP directly, that way eliminating one hop. It's recommended to use JIRA authentication only in cases where you don't already have one LDAP server.
