A simple connector pool for python-ldap.

Project Description

A simple connector pool for pyldap.

The pool keeps LDAP connectors alive and let you reuse them, drastically reducing the time spent to initiate a ldap connection.

The pool has useful features like:

  • transparent reconnection on failures or server restarts
  • configurable pool size and connectors timeouts
  • configurable max lifetime for connectors
  • a context manager to simplify acquiring and releasing a connector

You need pyldap in order to use this library


To work with the pool, you just need to create it, then use it as a context manager with the connection method:

from ldappool import ConnectionManager

cm = ConnectionManager('ldap://localhost')

with cm.connection('uid=adminuser,ou=logins,dc=mozilla', 'password') as conn:
    .. do something with conn ..

The connector returned by connection is a LDAPObject, that’s binded to the server. See for details on how to use a connector.

ConnectionManager options

Here are the options you can use when instanciating the pool:

  • uri: ldap server uri [mandatory]
  • bind: default bind that will be used to bind a connector. default: None
  • passwd: default password that will be used to bind a connector. default: None
  • size: pool size. default: 10
  • retry_max: number of attempts when a server is down. default: 3
  • retry_delay: delay in seconds before a retry. default: .1
  • use_tls: activate TLS when connecting. default: False
  • timeout: connector timeout. default: -1
  • use_pool: activates the pool. If False, will recreate a connector each time. default: True

The connection method takes two options:

  • bind: bind used to connect. If None, uses the pool default’s. default: None
  • passwd: password used to connect. If None, uses the pool default’s. default: None


Prior to v2.0.0 ldappool required python-ldap. As of v2.0.0 this library now required pyldap, a python 3 compatible fork of python-ldap.
