Backup of the LDAP Database .. again !
I looked in the archives for information related to the backup of the
database. It seems to me that the best on-line backup solution
available is to deploy a replicated slave - backup is performed by
stopping the slave and running ldbmcat ....
Okay, this works but I am a little concerned about the impact of running
two servers. I recognise that LDAP is tailored towards reads as opposed
to updates. My application does have more reads but there are a
sizeable amount of updates aswell. I am worried that the slave will
steal too much of my resoures. As of now, I do not have the luxury of
deploying the slave one a separate box.
Is this still the best solution ?
Can slapd be temporarily put into 'read mode' (online) allowing me to
perform a backup using ldbmcat ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
