If you really want to know things like that, the metrics support was built to let you install timers around individual connectors to measure the time. I don't think anything else is going to be anything but speculation.

This is probably going to turn out to be "because I'm using Rhino instead of the garbage pile Nashorn" but my entitlement script has:


"entitlement" here is an attribute from an LDAP connector, so this is the part that echoes all of the directory-based values in my script that adds all the other stuff.
