openldap is dog-slow???
I'm about to deploy OpenLDAP for centralized user authentications. I had
second thoughts though when I read this post (see bottom) in another list.
How true is this and are there any benchmarks available?
I'm planning to use LDAP for UNIX user authentication through RFC2307. I
recall reading a NetworkWorldFusion article where they stated that
OpenLDAP is dog-slow..
They were not kidding!! updating the posixAccount hierarchy (analogous to
/etc/passwd) takes about 0.46 seconds PER ENTRY!! that's horribly slow!!
Querying takes about 0.04 seconds (23 queries per second maximum) which is
still very slow! there's no way I can deploy this in a production
environment with my user load!!
Hmmm.. anyone tried the iPlanet LDAP server?
