Re: thread problem OpenLDAP 2.1.8 + Solaris 8 -- slapd locks or dies

After running a query script overnight, slapd's performance moved to a point where it would:

Run a batch of queries for about 6 seconds.
Pause for 4-5 seconds.
Run the next batch of queries.

db_stat reports no locks in the database.

I then stopped the queries, and waited an hour, and restarted it. The same process continued, showing that whatever was happening with slapd had not been freed up over time.

When I go to shutdown slapd, it refuses to shutdown:

Nov 17 09:37:47 ldap4.Stanford.EDU slapd[19795]: [ID 542995 local4.debug] slapd shutdown: waiting for 0 threads to terminate

ldap4:/var/log# date
Sun Nov 17 09:42:26 PST 2002
ldap4:/var/log# ps -eaf | grep slapd
root 19795 1 0 Nov 15 ? 61:54 /usr/local/lib/slapd -h ldap:/// ldaps:///

So something odd is definately happening with slapd somewhere. It looks like it is failing to free up some type of resource over time.
