Efficient Searching for Groups & its members

Hi All,

I am designing LDAP schema and the structure looks like :

---- ou = people
------- cn = john smith
---- ou = groups 
------ ou = group1
-------- member:john smith
------ ou = group2
-------- member: john smith

I would like to find out what all groups john smith belongs to (I have full dn) and all the members of a group. I am wondering about the performance of such search, since one person can be part of multiple groups and there can be thousands of groups in the server. If its a relational database I can create a relationship table and put indexes in place. How can I get best performance with OpenLDAP? Or is there any other way I should design this? 

Thanks for the help.
