   Another hint is create indexes uidNumber and gidNumber. You will have
to rebuild your LDBM database after that. And other thing I noticed is the
maximum number of file descriptors a process can open simultaneously. My
slapd, running on Solaris 7 Intel, has hung often 4 or my times at day,
but after I increased this parameter (from 64 to 256), it became stable.
