Re: free/non-free ladp servers comparizon

I don't see any mention of the hardware used, was the same HW even used on the AD vs Linux machine? Cooking benchmarks is a fine art where the only thing you can really be sure of is that this "number" is not indicative of real life.....

I can tell you for a fact that we are seeing higher results than that with
no caching.  We are running an ISP and using LDAP for authentication
(using OpenLDAP) and are seeing 5-10 connections a second (at least
accoring to the logs).  I really expect seeing even more than that.  As
for AD, I really would like to see that.  I find it hard to believe a
company like Novell, for example, would use OpenLDAP in its deployment of
Netware 5.1 if AD was 200 times faster.  I think the tests were bought and
paid for by the Gates Collective.
