Discussion of the problems faced with reconciliation at a large scale, and how that problem is addressed in IDM 5.5 using clustered recon. An overview of the implementation (paging, scheduling, etc...). Feedback was very positive. Partners happy that there will finally be an option for handling this problem, since they have faced the exact issue we aimed to solve.
Discussion also around the current challenges with sync behavior. Frustration with the sequential nature of processing livesync change sets, as well as the nature of sync operations themselves (sequential through each mapping, blocking the originating request). Discussion included plans that ForgeRock might execute on the 6.0 timeframe to address sync.
