The above document is out of date; the actual code is the best reference.
Why is it called "hierarchial backend"?
Because "Howard's backend" sounds too much like a movie title.
back-hdb shares most of the back-bdb code and has identical
configuration syntax. The only notable difference for slapd.conf is that
back-hdb requires a fairly large IDL cache in order to get good search
performance, while back-bdb can perform well on searches even without
the IDL cache.
