Re: (ITS#7657) Alias dereferencing with MDB slow compared with BDB

Hi Quanah,

I've transferred one of the nodes to back-hdb and the performance 
appears to broadly match back-bdb.

Is there a simple test I can perform to confirm that it is indeed using 

For completeness here's the result of my timed search:

bash-4.1$ time ldapsearch -H ldaps://rowan.authorise.is.ed.ac.uk:636 -b 
'ou=staff,ou=law,ou=hss,dc=authorise,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk' -a always 

# numResponses: 425
# numEntries: 424

real	0m0.902s
user	0m0.054s
sys	0m0.025s
