Re: slapd's syslogging slowing it down

The debug level of slapd is controllable within slapd.conf or via -d on the command line.

Use some less verbose debug setting?  (-d 0 should turn it Off)

Configure syslogd to write local4.* (or whatever facility you've configured slapd to use) to be written asynchronously? (Though I see you've said now that it is not being logged at all...)

Use remote syslogging?

Make sure that remote syslogging goes to a separate physical disk? (good idea to also separate your databases and bdb transactionlogs for back-bdb or back-hdb)

I tried configuring with --disable-syslog but it doesn't seem to have done anything. I wonder if there's a way to get rid of it cause it seems to have slowed things down. Perhaps not. It's hard to tell. When I create 100 entries then delete those same 100 entires my harddrive goes nuts and it takes quite a while (a few minutes).

Is there a configuration option I may be missing?

export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/ssl/include"
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/ssl/lib"
./configure --disable-syslog --enable-debug --enable-ldbm --disable-bdb --with-tls
