Re: openldap-slapd performance vs. Netscape-slapd ?

You must index the attributes your LDAP client software is looking
up.  Probablly things like uid, cn, uidnumber, gidnumber, etc.

Searching for an un-indexed attribute is very slow.  Searching for the
same attribute if slapd maintians an index for it is MUCH faster.
