I did not measure a full 54000 entry modification. I have sat for HOURS
and watched an ldapmodify spew forth one "updating xxx" per second when
I made massive changes (defined as run a slapcat, process with a perl
script to generate the ldif to update everyone, run ldapmodify on that
ldif). I have long since given up doing things that way.
Now, instead of writing a perl script using Net::LDAP to bind,
search/update (all entries), unbind. I write a perl script using
Net::LDAP to read the ldif file generated by slapcat, make the updates,
write a new ldif file, then I run slapadd to replace the whole
directory. It has proven to be just plain faster in my environment.
It's been about six months since I even tried the "live update" process
for anything more than a few entries.
