Re: Log files building up with large group

The BDB version is:

Sleepycat Software: Berkeley DB 4.4.20: (January 10, 2006)

It looks like checkpointing was the issue. Having run 'slapd_db_checkpoint -1' and 'slapd_db_archive -d' almost all the log files were removed. I've setup a cron job to checkpoint and clean-out hourly.

Thanks for the tip about the RPMs, I'll look into doing a dedicated build.

It looks like this RPM doesn't ship with checkpointing enabled, I'll try
that and see how it fares.

Well, you don't say what version of BDB, or what patches it may or may not have, which is *extremely* important. And 2.3.27 may well be an affected OpenLDAP release. There are many reasons not to use the RHEL builds of OpenLDAP for servers, that have been hashed over this list many times. I advise reading:
