Hallo everybody,

I am looking for documentation of hdb backend. Does anyone know where I
can find it?


The above document is out of date; the actual code is the best reference.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.
