Do you mean that BDB 4.3.27 is not suitable for production when used
I wouldn't use it on my systems, but that is my opinion.
As one of my esteemed colleagues noted when we were discussing BDB 4.3...
look at how many releases it took for BDB 4.2 before it became stable (52)
and that still required a few patches.
I've simply found the way in which BDB 4.3 handles its logs and allocates
memory to routinely be problematic. Very preliminary testing of
performance of BDB 4.3 I've done hasn't found it to be any faster than BDB
4.2, and in some cases, it appears to be slightly slower. I honestly see
no reason to upgrade to BDB 4.3 unless you need the transactions bits, and
even then you could apply the transactions patches I have posted to my
website for BDB 4.2 & OpenLDAP instead.
