Re: slapd/bdb stability problem

First, upgrade to the current (2.2.26) release. Next, make sure you run
the un-stripped built binary, so the symbol table remains. If the hang
occurs again, attach with gdb and get a backtrace of all the active
threads. I note that your original builds were using GNU Pth, which has
not been well-supported since they shifted to NGPT. Your best bet is to
just use the default Posix thread library (NPTL or LinuxThreads).
We use OpenLDAP in the Kolab project, but after switching to the bdb
backend there have been several reports about stability problems. Slapd
sometimes seems to hang when someone tries to write to the database
(for example with ldapadd).
The complete description is available at
Currently we use openldap-2.2.23 and db-126.96.36.199. Do you have any
suggestions on how I can get to the bottom of this problem? Anyone else
having similar problems? I'm out of ideas here, so any kind of help or
suggestion is greatly appreciated.
