I was wondering of anybody has used much of tcmalloc (from google
performance tools) and has any opinion they care to share with regards
to performance of berkeleydb/openldap toolset ?

Yes, tcmalloc is great.


Old news...

Seems about the same with as without for a simple slapadd, but i'd
expect that wins would be more around a highly loaded server, not the
initial load process?

slapadd re-uses most of its memory, and therefore doesn't make excessive calls to malloc.

(investigations continue however, server loading is next)
