Re: db region files, txn logs, and db files should all exist in separate directories

Currently there is no way to split off the txn logs, db files,

This would help with performance (especially on the master
server), as the three separate components could be placed
on separate disks.
db region files (__db.*) -> /var/ldap/openldap-bdb
db files (*.bdb) -> /var/ldap/openldap-bdb/data
txn logs (log.*) -> /var/ldap/openldap-bdb/transaction_log
The only configuration option available right now is the bdb
directory, and all the above mentioned files get created in that
If there exists some ways to fix this, I would appreciate it...
If not, do I file this as an enhancement request in the openldap
You are incorrect, it is quite possible to do exactly what you have asked,
and this is a BDB issue more than an OpenLDAP issue. ;)
You can place your log files into a separate directory using the
I forget how to separate out the __db.* bits from the *.bdb, but I recall
it is quite doable (I did it once, didn't really help much).
Also, in the OpenLDAP 2.2 series, you can use a memory cache for the __db.*
files, which appears to be quite efficient.
