Absolutely, yes.  We run OpenLDAP 2.0.x on RedHat, the default
packages.  Rock solid, good performer, our entire network, >200 clients,
one master, 3 slaves.  Never had a glitch.

Set something like "threads 9" in slapd.conf and see if that helps any.

We are testing 2.1.x.  It is very promising but there still seem to be a
fair number of issues cropping up, so we are sitting still on 2.0.x.

And 2.1.16 was released ~12 days ago?  I'm not dissin' any release of
OpenLDAP in any way, but I can't even imagine being able to complete a
pre-production testing cycle in 12 days.
