Heimdal Vs. MIT Round 4
Yesterday, I tested OpenLDAP using Heimdal and OpenLDAP using a 6/24/2004
HEAD checkout of MIT Kerberos (It has mutex protections in place).
Overall, results for MIT Kerberos have improved -- The server never locked
up, and it was able to keep a reasonable number of clients going (22).
Heimdal was able to keep 29 without issue.
Cyrus-SASL 2.1.19 (This release does *not* have mutex protections in.)
BDB 4.2.52 (plus 2 patches)
Note the far superior speed performance when using Heimdal. So, although I
understand that people often would prefer to have only a single Kerberos to
use, if you go with MIT as the underlying Kerberos to build cyrus-sasl
against, you are looking at getting 3x+ worse performance than if you went
