Sample text

Some files, of course, are read far more often than they are written. Application binaries are a good example of files in this category, but the size of these files is often larger than should be stored in a directory. Applications often access a file in chunks, especially if the file is large. File system APIs provide functions for Part I: Introduction to Directory Services and LDAP 33 34 Part I: Introduction to Directory Services and LDAP this very purpose, such as seek(), read(), and write(), which can be used to access only a portion of a larger file.

Directories are best at storing relatively small pieces of information, not multimegabyte files. Directories are good at storing pointers to large things, but not the large things themselves. • Character of the information. Directories typically have an attribute-based information model where information is broken up into a set of name value pairs (see Chapter 2, Introduction to LDAP, for a detailed discussion of the LDAP information model). If you can express your information naturally in this form, a directory might be a good choice.

This is perfectly acceptable. These details are hidden from the programmer by an LDAP SDK (software development kit). Programmers writing an LDAP application don't need to be concerned with sorting out these results; the SDKs take care of this automatically. 3. A Client Issues Multiple LDAP Search Requests Simultaneously Allowing multiple concurrent requests "in flight" enables LDAP to be more flexible and efficient than protocols that operate in a "lockstep" fashion (for example, Hypertext Transfer Protocol, or HTTP).
