I run a mail server with open-ldap backend.

Sometimes there is a lot of emails coming in, and ldap stops finding
the right records. LDAP and Mail servers are on different boxes.

The TOP program on LDAP server shows that most of the resources are
used by syslogd, not slapd.

in my slapd.conf I have:
"loglevel 1"

in my syslogd.conf, I have:
local4.* /dev/null

Is there any way to avoid syslogd overloading?


What version of OpenLDAP?

What operating system are you using?

What database backend are you using?

I run my servers on loglevel 256, on Solaris 8, and even on systems that answer 400,000+ queries a day, they have no problem keeping up with the logging.
