This is the TCP IP protocol behaviour. Before sending any data, the TCP
wait for a maximum of 200ms for additionnal data (it work like this on AIX).
This increases performance when multiple entries have to be sent (it limits
the number of IP/Ethernet Frame).

If you really need fast response you should edit your OpenLDAP sources
and set the TCP_NODELAY flag on client socket (like it is on the server
Then, response time should go under 5ms.

Maybe Netscape Directory Server dynamiquely sets the TCP_NODELAY flag.

If someone has the time I haven't to think about that :
- setting the TCP_NODELAY flag before sending the LDAP_RESULT if there
are no more running queries(thread) on the client socket should greatly
response time.
