Re: Openldap reliability

Have you indexed the directory? Whatever attibutes your mail server is using to search should be indexed. Before I added indexes for our system it was putting a huge load on the ldap server (and sometimes timing out). After adding indexes, it has run flawlessly for 8 months now. We are running on debian-woody (openldap-2.0.23) and we're using postfix/courier, not exim. (about 1100 entries in the directory)

	good luck,

Hi all,

Running openldap v2.0.27 under Redhat v7.3, we have encountered tremendous reliability problems.

Openldap doesn't die, it just stops accepting new connections - LDAP clients complain "LDAP server timed out". The LDAP server and client are on the same machine, so network is not a problem.

Is openldap v2.0 worth using in a production environment? Is v2.1.12 any better?
