Weird IdP Hanging Issue

Thanks for the help!  I'll turn up our LDAP logging and watch check the LDAP logs as well, and turn configuration reloading.  We have a pool of IdPs and like to reboot them one at a time anyways to bring the one with changes back down if there is an issue to make sure the service stays up as a safety precaution.  If this is our change policy, I don't think configuration reloading with gain us anything the way we are currently doing things.

You may well want the filer policy reloading, but probably not every minute.

Agreed, I didn't necessarily think it was the cause, but there's an explicit bug in relying-party reloading, though I think that actually hangs hard.

I would have to think your data connectors are the underlying cause here. If it's LDAP, I'd probably suggest logging more there.
