Re: slapd problems under stress


I can send you the test program (I don't think it is interesting enough
to send it to the list...)

Can you send me a tarball with source and a Makefile?

That seems to improve things a lot! I couldn't crash the system with the
ldbm-backend anymore if I apply that patch. I even get answers to all
the requests :-). I'll try our backends on monday.

Sounds to me like a deadlock problem, where the worker threads are not completing, and so you get more and more threads (960!) on your system until you crash. Can you experiment with values of max_concurrency (the second param above)? Interesting values would be 1, 10, 100, 500, and 1000. Which values are OK, and which aren't?

Shouldn't the maximum number of concurrent be a configurable parameter?

This might already be started. Anyway, I'll look into it.
