At a minimum, make sure that your syslog daemon isn't flushing on each
write. (With some daemons, -/file/name disables this.) Actually, we do
remote syslog (@loghost) so the UDP is send-and-forget from our live
servers, so there's no disk I/O at all.
(Note that none of the above is particular to OpenLDAP; we do this with
most of our services.)
Perhaps our production OpenLDAP servers work harder than the servers
everyone else here on the list manages? It's possible: we are a large
ISP, and we provision all our services with OpenLDAP.
There are some pretty large installations watching the list...
