I'd say that 600000 files in the docroot is a lot !! And yes, Steve is right, it's
the list_dir() in the docroot searching for auth files.
My recommendation is to reorganize your files, most file systems handle 600000 file
dirs pretty badly. Yes it works, but it's slow,

OTOH, it could be an idea to disable the auth file lookup entirely, no support
for that though.


its an old topic, but i want to bring it up back, as it affects me from time to time.
Is there a way to disable auth file lookup per Server, or for adding this as config option?
