pre-releases from Sleepycat of 4.6 indicated it was faster than 4.2.52 across the board. Both 4.4 and 4.5 come in slower than 4.2 and 4.6 in my testing. So from a throughput (read & write) standpoint, 4.2 is what I've found to be the "best" until 4.6 came along.


Am I the only one noticing this:

The recommended/optimal Berkeley DB 4.2.52 for OpenLDAP 2.3.x might not even be supported with the next major release 2.4.x.

I've been reading this thread and know about the background on this, but still..

And your point is?

BDB 4.1 was the best available when OpenLDAP 2.1 was released; it was deprecated in favor of BDB 4.2 when OpenLDAP 2.2 was released. How is this any different?

BDB 4.3 would have been the preferred version when OpenLDAP 2.3 was initially released, but we found that 4.3 was terribly broken. It's great that BDB 4.2 has worked for us so long, but it's time to move on.
