Re: Garbage entries with intense use
I have noticed that when I do massive updates on my OpenLdap my db
size increases astonishingly, so I have to take an ldif and create
from scratch periodically. Obvioulsy a garbage-entries problem, but
seems to be very frequent. I supose it is a db problem, not an ldap
problem (in that case, it would have been fixed yet ;)). I don't know
exactly wich db uses my server, but it uses .dbb extensions in its files.
Do you know where is the problem exactly? If the cause is in the db
engine, can you recommend me a better one?
You didn't mention the version numbers of anything you're currently
using. The best available DB engine at the moment is Berkeley DB
4.2.52(+2 patches). Note that database files tend to be sparse, and
generally don't actually use as much disk space as the size in their
directory listing would indicate, so you may be reacting to something
that isn't a real problem.
