Re: Corruption of Index files running readonly slapd (ITS#2582)
These are the indexes we have defined:
index objectClass eq,pres
index uid,uidNumber,gidNumber,rid,memberUid,mailAlias eq,pres
index sn,cn,mail pres,eq,sub
and we have no performance problems just after the import of our data.
After all 'ldapsearch' reports only 4143 entries in our database. Is
this a large setup ?
