Re: 8 hours tests ends with inconsistent DB.

I certainly see your point, above, but I don't think you're going to get much of an idea of scaling using the approach you're using. As I understand your method, you're trying to put a server up and hammer it without knowing much about configuring it. I don't think this tells you anything about scale. This *might* tell you something about how easy it is to give the application to someone who doesn't know anything. The test you're performing might be appropriate if you're hoping to repackage and distribute OpenLDAP to 50 million customers.

As I understand your *actual* need, you're planning to deploy an infrastructure of some size to serve 50 million customers. This is a much different task. In order to do this successfully, you will need to know how many machines to deploy. You'll need to know how to operate OpenLDAP, including how to configure it. In order to know that, you'll need to know what the real read & write load is likely to be, average & peak.

Shhh ... ;) This thread has been enormously interesting. It *has* exposed at least one Openldap weakness (index corruption), *has* demonstrated the need for correct database configuration and log file administration.It'd also point toward the use of correct hardware for the job in hand. Let it run its course, please?
