Re: Case studies of heterogenous servers

Not unrelated to my previous question of multiple suffixes (which was so
obvious that I'd overlooked it). does anyone know of any case studies
involving OpenLDAP servers with many suffixes? I'm trying to get a handle
on the number of suffixes (accessed by DNS SVR records) and the resources
required.Beyond more than a handful, it would be more efficient to use a single
database with a common suffix (e.g., "dc=com", or "") since locating a
database via suffix is a linear search, while locating a DN within a
database is an O(logN) search.
A good example would be a big ISP using OpenLDAP to serve many domains, or
a mega-corporation with many subsidaries etc.
No, we're not planning a world take-over; at least, not yet...
