Hi All,

First of all thks for helping me out with the issues on openLDAP.
Well today, my query is pretty generic and lot many people working on
LDAP would face such an issues.

We are using openldap 2.4.26 with BDB as backend. We've installed the
setup on linux machine of 64 bit with 4GB ram.ÂNow, currently we have
some 10K records in it and its working perfectly fine. Our systems is
running under replication - syncrepl.

However, in near future we can foresee some million of records to turn
up. So, Can any one please advise - What are the different Scaling
options available with LDAP?Â

I'm not sure what you mean by scaling options. OpenLDAP scales, and that has been shown numerous times. How well/far it scales depends entirely on your hardware and operating system and the size of the DB in relation to those things.
