Re: Proper values for threads and tool-threads

I'm setting up a new installation of OpenLDAP 2.4.25 on RHEL machines

supporting two threads). /proc/cpuinfo shows there are 48 processors. The
backend hdb database will eventually have millions of records with
thousands of concurrent readers and writers. Is there a good equation to
use for determining a value for threads and tool-threads? I'd like to
take advantage of the hardware available. I get a warning if I set
threads higher than 32:
olcThreads: value #0: warning, threads=48 larger than twice the default
I shouldn't be slapcat'ing and slapadd'ing it very often, but like to set
tool-threads to an appropriate value for the hardware.
How many real cores do you have?
Generally tool-threads should be set to that number.
Generally threads should be set to no more than 4 threads per real core
IIRC (8 is generally good for 1 or 2 cores, 16 for 4 cores, etc).
