RE: search speed


a few things that I found pretty effective were:

Do not use syslog to log LDAP messages to instead setup logging in a
separate file.

Reduce the level of logging for slapd.

And of course re-indexing the database etc which you have already done.

I found that adjusting the logging parameters was the most effective thing
to do. I was running this "test" server on a 486 DX2 and I managed to get
the response time from around 2 seconds down to less than half a second!
