I know this guides an I also read FAQs an Adminguide. dn2id plus
id2entry is a rule of thumb. If I calulate this like you told, its
approx the same size ...

loglevel is 0
I know, I should better use 256, but for this reason, I did switch off
logging :-( for testing.

I sent my first posting 2 days ago, but it did not reach the list ....
My second question is missing in the list till now.
So I sent them a second time, because I thought they got lost.

But what about the first part of my question. in this Posting. How
will be a ldapsearch processed?
Does the slapd, search the whole database despite of indexes?

Thanks you very much
