Presumably because backup has previously only been described in
the FAQ-o-Matic. But I'm pretty sure this has been the documented
backup method with the Berkeley DB backends since forever.
"the documented" -> "a documented" backup method. In the FAQ, which
people were commonly directed to read earlier in OpenLDAP's life.
Getting back to how to speed up restore:
If you do move to slapcat/slapadd, note that tuning slapd as described
in the Guide speeds up slapadd a lot, if you have not already done
that. So does the -q flag to slapadd. There was a time when a
normally configured slapd would not open a database built with slapadd
-q, but I think that was a long time ago.
