I was wondering of anybody has used much of tcmalloc (from google

performance of berkeleydb/openldap toolset ?

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

(investigations continue however, server loading is next)


The only authenticated binds to our directory service that we support
are GSSAPI binds.  On Linux, Cyrus SASL/malloc leak memory bad enough
that without either hoard or tcmalloc OpenLDAP is unusable.
