Re: LDAP Caching

does openldap implement sort of caching?


Or does it completely rely on
the underlying database like bdb (default)?


Read the documentation.

I'm noticing an intensive
i/o load while the complete slapcat export of our ldap data is only
about 34MB big so everything besides writing/updating should fit into
the memory.

Caching only helps if a particular piece of data will be used more than once. When you slapcat a database you extract every entry once and never use it again. I.e., most cache settings have very little benefit for slapcat.
