It seems that you've changed the IDL cache from write-through-invalidate to
I've done this as the write-through-invalidate design, because at the time of design, the
main objective was
to improve the search performance both with / wihtout the presence of intermittent
It seems that the slapindex access has a repeated read-modify-write pattern whose
can be significantly improved by the write-through-update cache design.
