Is this to be expected or have we done something wrong?

It is to be expected.

In testing we did @ Zimbra, we found it to be substantially slower to do writes in parallel than to just serialize the writes. I suggest you rework your process. ;)

Actually, we're not trying to speed things up by writing in parallell. It just happens that the clients are on different machines and writes to the ldap master. So serialization is not an option.
