why is dn indexed ??
I have been watching an ldif2ldbm process foing on my machine for
four hours now and it is stuck on substring indexing of dn.
As far as I can see this index is not specified in the slapd file, I
have tried to locate where the trigger for it is in the ldif2ldbm
program and the ldif2index program.
I wonder what the use of substring indexing of the dn when the dn cannot
be used for searches or am I wrong. I can;t think of any process within
the server where substring searches of the dn would be used. Equality
searches possibly but not substring.
Is this a hangover from x500 that is no longer valid as a standalone
This is just a thought on speeding up the processing of data.
