Subject: LDAP performance slow intermittently

My LDAP server (version 2.3.43) performance is quite erratic; for a few minutes, search operations are lightning fast, and then it slows down to several seconds for a single search, and then it is fast again, etc.

I am not sure how to troubleshoot/determine the root cause of this intermittent problem. Any suggestions are appreciated.


Are you searching for the same entries each time? What exactly are you searching for? Are the entries that you are searching for indexed? What are the specs of the server? Is the box heavily loaded?
