bulk load speeds bdb vs ldbm
We run an OpenLDAP server to provide a "white pages" directory
that is queried by email clients and a web look-up form. Nothing
complicated, complete reload of the database each night using
an extract from out student/employee records system.
ldbm has been working fine. We can reload all 30k entries in
a couple of minutes using slapadd.
Common wisdom seems to be that bdb is better, so I'm investigating
switching. The first problem is that the load takes 2-3 hours :-(
The slapd.conf params I've found that look like they might help
have been set thusly:
Any suggestions on what I can do to bring bdb load times more in line
with ldbm? Or should I just stick with what's working (ie ldbm)?
