Re: slapindex performance?
Oh! Thanks a lot for your suggestions.
We're using the latest stable release of 2.3.19. I'm on a Centos (Linux
I had started running the reindexing sometime back. Will it be a problem
if I quit it midway and db_recover the data? Or should I just allow it
to go through the entire thing.

I'm trying to reindex my slapd database (bdb) since I added one more
equality index. My db has more than 6M entries. I'm trying to see how
long this will take... I didn't find any proper reference in the web.
anyone done something similar and have any performance data on
What version of OpenLDAP are you using?
I would suggest (of course) OpenLDAP 2.3. In OpenLDAP 2.3, there are
two things that massively improve the speed of slapindex (which is
slower than slapadd in all previous releases). They are:
The "-q" option, to run it via "quick"
The ability to set "tool-threads", which will allow slapindex to use
multiple CPU's while indexing your DB.
Also, if you are adding a brand new index, there is no need to
re-index all your existing indices. You only need to index what is
new, which will also speed up slapindex. I.e.,
edit slapd.conf, commenting out all indices except the new one(s).
Run slapindex -q with an appropriate amount of tool-threads (1 per
CPU, so on a 2 CPU system, tool-threads 2, etc)
After it is done, edit slapd.conf, uncommenting your pre-existing
