Starting this thread is to understand communication between Policy Server and LDAP user store in-depth. Please share your experiences in this regard.

Few questions to start with:

I understand each of my policy server has 3 connections(persistent?) to each Directory Server configured. 1 for Bind, 1 Search, 1 for Ping.
Are these 3 connections opened to each of the Directory Server configured in User Directory object? assuming we have 3 servers providing round-robin feature.
Are the connections only opened for User Directory objects that are 'BOUND' to a Domain/Policy? or the connections are opened for each User Directory object created in WAM UI?
Is there a concept of idle timeout for 'Bind'/any connections? where is it controlled?
What happens when there is excessive load and multiple backend operations are required? How/wheredo we control the number of connections between the 2?
I have read about adding the same LDAP host name again to increase the connections, have nt tried it yet though.
