I have set up a small LDAP Server mainly serving as E-Mail Adressbook
for Netscape/Mozilla/Outlook Express Clients. It contains about 250
Entries, wich are updated via a script every 20 minutes.
The Database has indices over
index objectClass eq
index cn,sn,givenName,mail pres,eq,approx,sub
Today I realized that in the openldap-data dir are a huge (some
Gigabytes!!) of log.xxxxxxx (where xxxx is an ascending number) logfiles.
I googeled a bit and found:
a) Those are Berkeley DB Transaction logs for recovery, right?
b) I can delete all those files that db_archive tells me are not in use,
But: since the slapd was running since two weeks or so, db_archive gave
not one (!) filename that is save to delete. According to b) I have to
keep all those files? After restarting slapd db_archive then told me a
lot of files and I could free some diskspace.
Do I really have to restart LDAP every now and then to get safely rid of
those (<for me>useless</for me>) Transaction logs? Can I configure
somewhere that I don't need them?
By the way: I found the slapd process to be 224 MB after two weeks - I
know that might be caching, but is that normal for just one database
with the above dimensions? After restart it was about 2 MB and now its
about 5 MB.
Thanks for your help and your time!
