I change the maxsize of my db all the time, while slapd is running,
issue, as long as the maxsize is not attempted to be set to less than
of the actual size of the DB.
Cool; thanks for the data point.
I rather thought the manpage was self-explanatory. Put another way - in the
middle of a heavy write load when your server is running at 100% utilization
is the wrong time to discover that you need to increase the maxsize. A smart
admin picks a very large number at init time (e.g. some percentage of the disk
partition size) and never has to worry about it again.
