Re: 8 hours tests ends with inconsistent DB.

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.
While totally agreeing with your deployment strategies I would not count them as proper arguments for the matter at hand (benchmarking OL). I may be ignorant but I'd expect a poorly configured system to perform poorly and of course not doing things as you expect but not to misbehave or fail. If the underlying DB is not configured explicitely, fall back to sane defaults, if you hit the resource limits of hardware or whatever mechanism, the application should behave gracefully.
