Number of replicated systems?
Netscape/iPlanet have always told us that when we got to about 7 or 8
replicated hosts we would be at the system's limit, and would need to
introduce a "hub" system. That's just a system that gets updates from
the master, and then in turn sends out updates to its own cluster of
slave systems (so it's a cascading replicator, both master and slave).
In any case, I never found out if they were right since I've never gone
over 6 slave hosts. Is there some data out there on how many
replicated hosts one can have off a single master? I'd like to
rearchitect our LDAP service entirely and end up with something like a
dozen hosts replicated off a single master. Is this feasible?
Unfortunately I don't have enough non-production hardware to do the
testing myself and find out the right way.
