No, but I'm visually illterate for all intents and purposes, so your table quite honestly doesn't tell me anything I can interpret as a question relating to a specific aspect of the software.

If you narratively explain what is slower specifically, then I could speak to what's changed. If you don't know what's actually slower, then I would suggest you need to instrument things with logging and/or the metrics support to actually identify where it's slowing down specifically.

But there is little doubt for me that it's your environment, not the IdP. I've seen no substantive changes since I deployed 3.0 that weren't because of Jetty bugs/leaks, and I wouldn't have expected any.

If LDAP is involved, then I would likely be looking at your network and LDAP situation as a culprit. That stuff has definitely changed, just not in ways I ever noticed.
