We have 60k users, and our mail servers do over a million lookups a day. We also have labs doing posixAccount lookups, etc. Everything is speedy. ;)

for instance:

which I ask to return "mailmessagestore"


which I have return "mailforwardingaddress"

Have you turned up logging (like loglevel 256) in slapd.conf and looked to see if you get index param errors? That generally means you have the wrong indexing.

started loosing the ability to log in and other odd errros developed
until I undid this.

proper indexes are my best hope.**

I suggest reading:


about indexes and the cachesize command.

You also do not list what backend you are using, and how it is configured.
