Re: LDAP hangs requiring slapd stop and deleting __db.00* files
a) OpenLdap seems to get locked up every once in a while. i.e. While
the process is running, it fails to authenticate.
Because process is still running, our monitoring system, Monit, does
not recognize that as a failure.
I suggest you use a monitoring system that can make a real LDAP request
instead of just looking for a process in the process table. Nagios is
one good choice for that.
b) When the server load becomes high, 4 to 5 then authentication is
irratic. It works sometimes and sometimes it does not.
When server load became high to the tune of 16/18, ldap failed
Maybe I am too conservative, but I believe your expectation that an
application works OK at loads above 5 is unrealistic. If you find that
your set of software works fine under *normal* loads you should look at
getting hardware that is better suited to what you're doing - the
current hardware seems underspecified.
