Hi All,
I am using Single Master (2.3.4), 5 Slaves (2.2.26) with syncrepl, all
using BDB 4.5.2 + four patches.

I am facing a lot of problems with BDB. I frequently get "PANIC" messages
in the logs and I simply have to rebuild the database.
I have already looked at FAQ-O-Matic and tuned the BDB cache.

Will using MySQL instead of BDB help ? I have about 15K entries in by
How would MySQL possibly perform ?

MySQL would generally be very slow.

You probably want to upgrade to OpenLDAP 2.3.6 for your master. OpenLDAP 2.3.4's auto-recovery system had some bugs in it. You don't say which system(s) you are seeing the errors on. Is it only the master? All of your systems? etc. BDB 4.2.52+patches tends to be quite stable in and of itself.
