I work in a large college and every year we have to delete all our users and re-enter them -- including GroupWise mailboxes.

We use JRButils for this and we have found if we tune eDirectory with the following, we get better performance out of the directory during the import.

SET DSTRACE=!MDYN,%:75,MIN:8388608

The first bit of the command sets a dynamic limit of 75% of available memory on the server for eDirectory to use. The second bit sets a minimum of 8MB to keep everything running okay.... Of course importing locally to the server is highly recommended!
