Does anybody have a pointer to any performance comparisons between

I was extremely happy with the performance boost using 389 on a Linux
VM which is 5-8 times faster for ldapsearch operations than the older
Sun machines with Sun DS 6.3.
Please note that earlier versions of the SunDS EULA forbade the
publishing of competitive benchmark figures.
In testing one of our most important use cases just now, I find that
the ldapmodify speed is many many times slower. This doesn't make
much sense, so I think I'm doing something wrong or having something
You mean, with SunDS? On Linux or Solaris?
I improved the write performance by using large db cache sizes and
moving the nsslapd-db-home-directory to tmpfs. Now most modify
operations have very little I/O wait except when occasionally flushing
the index files and such, and yet, there is a CPU pegged for very long
periods of time, orders of magnitude higher than on Sun DS.
Is there any documentation on ldapmodify performance that I could
review? Google searching seems eerily silent on the issue… (which
also leads me to believe I have something misconfigured if nobody has
been asking about the issue…)
The particular use case I am working with involves replacing large
quantities of uniqueMember values on entries in ou=groups.
Yeah, this particular operation has not been optimized. I believe SunDS
added explicit optimizations for this particular case.
