Re: Recommended backend for Replication Config examples?

For the backend type for all the replication examples I'm doing just now,
should we use bdb or hdb?
I notice that in slapd.conf.default we are using bdb.
I'm in no hurry to deprecate back-bdb, and back-hdb's initial performance is
heavily dependent on priming its IDL cache. It's a tossup - back-bdb with no
subtree renames but less cache sensitivity, or back-hdb with full directory
semantics and more cache sensitivity. I suspect we'll be carrying both for a
long time, because of this tradeoff.
