Is there a way to process AD Import NSEs without going into the event queues?
There is a core setting that should be able to accomplish such task. It is called "ADImportDirect".

The only thing that can be achieved using this option is:
Remove load to the NSE processing Queue of the SMP itself (this will not ease it overall for SMP machine, thought).
How to use it:
