DB_CONFIG with growing data sets

Hiya all,

I have not actually had a problem with this yet but was wondering what you do with DB_CONFIG
with a growing directory. i.e. you configure DB_CONFIG for your tree with suitable sizes for your
growth predictions, fine. Then the tree grows and grows and I guess you chaneg DB_CONFIG to
reflect this. Presumably when you restart slapd the new DB_CONFIG is read and all is well.

So, when you create the initial DB_CONFIG if you have enough memory is it good practice to configure
it so that it uses as much memory as you can spare to contain your growing directory or should you
continually change DB_CONFIG (the frequency of this depends on your directory growth rate)
to reflect the size of your directory?
