Thanks for pointing out this.
I first considered comparing the numbers of IDs in memory and DB IDL.
Because bdb_idl_fetch_key is on the critical path, a single c_get and
to get the DB IDL size affects search performance. For the most cases where
slapadd is run not so frequently, how about having a signal based solution
? ...
making slapd invalidate its idl cache upon receiving a signal from slapadd
