Re: slapd stops working when machine becomes CPU bound (ITS#3149)

It's unclear from the information you provide whether the behavior you
describe is due to a bug in OpenLDAP Software or due to some other
problem (a bug elsewhere, or a configuration problem).

I suggest you try to isolate the problem.  I suggest you start by
using OpenLDAP clients (e.g., ldapsearch(1)) to reproduce the behavior
instead of involving non-OpenLDAP clients.

This issue will be moved to Feedback state pending details which
more clearly shows the behavior is due to a bug in OpenLDAP Software.
