I was using the "slapindex" program to create new index files for my LDBM
database. It took about 1.5 hrs to run, to reindex a single attribute. I had
attributes that I wanted to reindex, and it seemed absurd to do this one at a
the slapindex program should be able to reindex multiple attributes in a single

I made changes to the latest (devel) build of slapindex to allow this, it was
trivial. I ran it, giving it 6 attributes to index at once. It took under 2 hrs
run, instead of the 9 hrs it would have taken to run them serially.

As per the patch submission guidelines, a "diff -luN" of the changes is
available at


Share & Enjoy.
