clients that searched for a particular item. Comparing version 2.3.39
with 2.3.32 the footprint increases. From top:

The following things affect the size of slapd:

BDB cache size in DB_CONFIG
Number of file descriptors made available to slapd
Entry cache (cachesize in slapd.conf)
idlcachesize (in slapd.conf)
