 Have you bombarded your system with Zero think time
tests and 200-500+ users. Do you understand the amount
of stree the system is required to handle when
200-500+ users hit a system housing 1million records
with no think time ????.

 A 15-20 user test i am sure i will get openldap to
excel at. I want my feedback to help us all scale this
setup to Enterprise needs.

 BTW: A Zero think time test never can be imitated in
any real life situation since every user infuses a
large amount of think time into the action of using an
 Also...a 200+ user test without Think Time is real
high load for any system. If it can withstand this
test as an 8 hour ordeal.....we have a REAL Stable
System here.

 Mike...i to have some of the best h/w and storage $$
can buy. Thats why i am trying to push openldap to the
max on em.

 Did some tests on 1lakh records and now am on 1
million records.

 No SSL here. But an 8 hour pounding with 200 users
for a simple write only test takes it down. 
 I don't deny that there could be several other params
wrt to the OS/SUT that need to be tweaked. Isnt' that
what this is all about..:D
