I was reading your directory service page and I was wondering if you
would post yours scripts that you used to check the number of responses
per second your server could handle?
Saves me the time of writing my own ;-)
The scripts I have are not benchmarking scripts in the light that people
generally tend to look for as benchmarking utilities. They are a pair
scripts designed to see how OpenLDAP behaves under a very particular
environment -- SASL/GSSAPI queries where the operation is BIND, SEARCH
using an exact eq filter returning 1 attribute, and UNBIND. They in no way
try to determine the maximal response rate of the server. I use them
because they emulate the manner in which our mail routers function when
querying OpenLDAP. What it gives me is a consistent set of data I can
compare against over time, against which I can draw conclusions about how
the way the server performs when changes are made.
The only actually benchmarking software for directories that I'm aware of
is Mindcraft's DirectoryMark, which is free to use.
