I did a very similar test (I guess you're also benchmarking for
qmail-ldap) a few months ago, with OpenLDAP-2.1.25->2.1.30 on bdb
backend with db-22.214.171.124, on Dell PowerEdge 1750's (IIRC 2.8GHz Xeon's)
with 2GB ram, with 250 000 entries in the directory. I ran 4 instances
of my test script on each of 3 machines, and consistently achieved 200
queries/sec. OpenLDAP-2.2.x should do quite a bit better ...

You shouldn't need that many. You might be over-tuning here (+- 8MB
memory required per thread IIRC). IIRC I was running with 36.

Your searches use a searchfilter of "mail=<string>", yet you aren't
indexing mail. You probably need something like:
index mail eq,pres

Bad idea ...

Caching 10 000 000 LDAP entries when you only have 3500 seems a bit

This one is deprecated by the BDB configuration in DB_CONFIG

Index the attributes you use in your search filters ...
