I would suggest you look at the perfomance numbers for BDB at: http://www.openldap.org/conf/odd-sfo-2003/jong.html

You were probably running LDBM before with 2.0.x. You may want to try LDBM again if you don't need the transactional integrity of BDB...

We use BDB with a particularly large DB (close to 300,000 people with 20+ attributes each), and have no performance problems to speak of. Our systems are heavily utilized 24/7. There are some basic configuration pieces to BDB that can help improve performance. I would be curious to know if your slowdowns happen to coincide with write activity. Also, have you looked at your BDB stats? Perhaps you have not allocated a large enough cache.
