I have a problem with mdb and modify operations on very large groups.
Specifically deleting members from those groups. Removing 10 members
from a group with 25000 members takes 23 seconds. Which also means, all
other clients that want to do something hang. Deleting a user from
multiple big groups takes minutes before it finishes. Adding members to
a large group is quick though.
When this delete is running, the cpu goes also up to 100%.
It looks like it has to do with the index that I have on uniqueMember.
If I remove the index on uniqueMember, the delete of members in big
groups is fast.
System details are
CentOS 6 64bit
Is this something normal/exptected or is it maybe a bug?
Read slapd.conf(5) manpage, sortvals keyword.
Thanks for the hint Howard.
Deleting members from a big group on the test server is now fast with
Adding of members is a very little slower (20-30ms) compared to the
adding without sortvals. I will see how it goes on the production
environment with the real workload.
Personally, I prefer dynamic groups. You may wish to investigate those as
