Re: Max number of entries

Performance ceilings are in general more dependent upon database configuration with respect to cache size, checkpoint interval, etc.

For a really good guide to tuning, take a look at the Sleepycat documentation for Berkeley databases. Most of back-bdb's database configuration is done using bdb's DB_CONFIG file.

With a properly tuned database and enough ram, the world is yours for the taking.

If you have very strange needs, such as tens of thousands of attributes on a single object, or tens of thousands of values per attribute on a single object, you may wish to do testing. It's been my experience that most commercial products tend to do far worse for strange cases though.

Hi, I was wondering if there is any known (approx) maximum number of entries
that OpenLDAP Directory Server can handle before the performance starts to
degrade very badly (Assuming that the required indexes are used and required
good hardware is available).
Also, theoretically I am assuming there is no limitation other than the size
of the DB (

Right ?
