RE: SLOW Performance: OpenLDAP on Linux and IBM Dual Xeon?
Yes, my wa column of vmstat is up around 100 on my slow Xeon and only 9 or
10 on my kick ass Pentium 3. :)
Surprisingly, when I ran under single processor kernel, openldap seemed to
perform better, but I don't have the metrics saved to conclude that. But I
can definitely say performance is abismal on my super fast machines and
superb on my jallopy.
