For now, given the reduced performance relative to 4.2, the only reason
I find it interesting is that it finally supports cache segments larger
than 4GB. This has been somewhat of a hindrance on our testing on large
64-bit deployments, still not sure if that win offsets the other losses.
There are still a number of types and structures that are tied to 32
bits, which is somewhat annoying.
For those interested, BDB 4.4 has been released. Preliminary support
for building OpenLDAP against BDB 4.4 exists in HEAD.
At Sleepycat's request, Symas Corporation has been testing BDB 4.4
for several weeks. Initial testing found BDB 4.4 to be slower than
BDB 4.2 or BDB 4.3 when doing 'db_load' commands and running slapadd
on various size databases.
Evaluating slapd's performance under BDB 4.4 is still underway.
Please share results when you can.
