Deleting+Adding data while server is running


I have a situation where I want to drop all the data within an
OpenLDAP server and then do a massive batch import while the server is
still running. I've run into the problem where if I invoke slapadd,
the server needs to be shutdown, but am not sure if this is a
necessity or that I may be doing something wrong.

So, my questions are:
1) Firstly, what is the best way of doing this (full delete + import)
so that the performance is optimal?
2) What is the optimal way of doing this if I want the server to be
running throughout?
3) What is the performance impact of the above approaches (if different)?
