According to  you can get the actual size with a du. But my
problem is that I'm using zfs with a compressed file system, so du
reports the compressed size, not the real one.
Addressing this from the filesystem side, rather than openldap, "du -A"
reports the apparent size rather than the used size - this gives you the
file sizes without compression. That's for FreeBSD, I have not used zfs
on linux, but it looks like "du --apparent-size" should do the same thing.
