Disabling transaction logging for slapadd (2.1.25, bdb)
I am trying to import a relatively large number of accouts (200k+) via
slapadd on a box running 2.1.25, with a bdb database, and where ldbm took
about 75minutes to import the whole ldif file, on bdb it had been running
for 2 days when I stopped it (and it was about half way).
According to the OpenLDAP docs, I should be able to use the DB_CONFIG file
to set some db options when using bdb, but I haven't had success that way.
For instance, having:
# rm -f /var/lib/ldap/mail/*;cp -f /var/lib/ldap/DB_CONFIG_import
/var/lib/ldap/mail/DB_CONFIG; slapadd -c -l
/etc/openldap/net-mail-isp.ldif;time slapadd -l
/tmp/mail_20031023-converted-nomodify.ldif -c -v
slapadd: could not add entry dn="cn=mail,ou=isp" (line=5): txn_begin
failed: Invalid argument (22)
slapadd: could not add entry dn="cn=net,cn=mail,ou=isp" (line=10):
txn_begin failed: Invalid argument (22)
The same happens if I have:
Without any entries in DB_CONFIG, it imports fine (but writes transaction
logs, and takes forever).
The client wants some benchmarks, and with the available time, it won't be
practical to test with bdb if I can't speed up the import ...
At present I am running with db-4.1.25.
