The alpha builds the db in about 25 mins adding about 30
entries a second where as the linux box takes many hours
at about 1+ entries a second. This according to the syslog
file. I see no diffs. in the openldap config file. I am
sort of stuck using what comes with rhel4 right now (I know,
it is older version). Any ideas how I can speed up the linux
version? Should I be using bdb DB_CONFIG options and/or openldap
options. If so, what should I use? Thanks in advance!

Yes, DB_CONFIG is *required*

You also should not be using BDB 4.3, that's a known problem release.

You desperately need to upgrade your OpenLDAP versions (2.3.20 or higher).

BTW, OpenLDAP 2.3 supports threaded slapadd, and a quick option in addition to that.
