RE: LDAP search limits (ITS#1434)

The bug would be that I'm setting a limit and it is ignored. Unless your telling me I'm justs suggesting to the server how many entries I want and the server is free to ignore it...

Not being able to tell the server to stop after it collects a certain number of entries (on the query) takes away the ability to sample a query space. With a data space that contains 300,000+ entries there is a very large performance difference between sampling 1,000 entries or searching the entire data space for 60,000 entries.

I can't just set it in the configuration file since the application needs to also be able to do full queries (less frequently) but I can't have the application getting root access to override the config file.

I see nothing in your report that indicates that a bug
exists in OpenLDAP.  As such, I will close this report.
