test008 ran on top of the 1 million entry directory or with tests/data/test.ldif ?

besides memory, what is the spec for other things ? CPU ?

I've just tried to run test008 with my box (P4-2.4G) - with the test ldif file
Both bdb and ldbm finished between 30 and 40 seconds...
My test uses the default test setup - uses the default slapd.1.conf file generated by the
test script.

The difference between ldbm and bdb became significant when indexing came into the
So this may be a sign that we should improve the bdb indexing system further.

The difference between 2.1 bdb and 2.2 bdb might come from several improvements such as
the transaction backoff and not doing the dn2id indexing for the suffix entry (esp. when
the underlying database is large).
It also seems that the context CSN code is not a severe bottleneck because 2.2 bdb
ran more than twice faster than 2.1 bdb. - but to make sure, I think it required to
harness the backend
with tests having higher concurrency.

HDB's improvement over BDB shows that the hierarchical structure
of the directory and the backend implementation matches very well....
