I can confirm this. I compared 2.0.25 ldbm and 2.1.3 bdb search
performance on Solaris 8/9 with a 100,000 entries dataset. The 2.1.3
version was at least 30% faster.
My issue with 2.1.3 is that lib(ldap|lber) no longer have
ldap_build_filter() and ldap_url_search*(). John Morrissey ldap modules
for apache and proftpd fail to compile. Although ldap_build_filter() is
fairly easy to replace, I am not certain what is the best way to deal with
ldap_utl_search functions. Any ideas?
