Thank you both for your quick response. I understand non-indexed reads will always be slower than indexed, but
it was a batch process and I didn't want to incur the overhead of another
write-impacting index. I've recently come back to OpenLDAP and so wasn't sure whether the new version's backend became 'fragmented' (for lack of a better term) like the old ones (<=2.1.25) seemed to. I hoped they did not, but I wanted to confirm as I haven't been running 2.4.25 w/BDB 4.8.30 long enough or under enough load yet to tell. I'm glad to hear 'defraging' is not required in newer versions.
I will begin testing BDB 5.x as a replacement to our current BDB 4.8.30 backend. Is anyone aware of any technical reasons why one should use 5.1.25 over 4.8.30?

No. ÂYou are having this problem by running ancient releases of OpenLDAP and BDB. ÂBTW, BDB 5.x (5.1 and 5.0) are also fully supported by OpenLDAP 2.4.23 and later.

Back in the days of OpenLDAP 2.1 with Berkeley DB 126.96.36.199 we used to
have to 'reload' out backend database occasionally as non-indexed reads
would get slower and slower over time. The 'reload' entailed:
Ââ stop slapd
Ââ slapcat the contents to an .ldif file
Ââ remove the database files
Ââ slapadd the .ldif file to create a new, fresh db instance
Ââ start slapd
Then our performance problems went away. Re-indexing didn't do the trick.
Is such occasional re-building of the backend database recommended in
OpenLDAP 2.4.25 with Berkeley DB 4.8.30?
