Please see answer in your previous e-mail below.
I'm also sending the information I could collect attached since it is a
The behavior that appears strange and that could indicate a problem is
the fact that even when consumer is stopped the provider still doing
something for a long time. This doesn't appear to be correct.
Other strange behavior is that when system enters in this state one
provider CPU stays running around 100% CPU usage. I made a jmeter script
to test individual bind/search(no ldapsearch *) and then even with some
load(like 200 simultaneous query) I do not see CPU in 100%. Something
doesn't appear to be ok since I do not see why CPU should enter in 100%
I explained to you previously why this would be. Other comments inline.

Do you have any evidence that an offline slapcat is faster than one while
slapd is running? I don't understand what you mean in the rest of that

Hm, I would probably checkpoint the cookie a lot more frequently than you
have it set to. The sessionlog setting seems fine to me.
Same configuration in both systems.

[Rodrigo]I implemented what was possible. The end is this cache config
possible by the memory constraints :
# Cache values
# cachesize 10000
# dncachesize 400000
# idlcachesize 10000
# cachefree 10
You don't say anything in here about your DB_CONFIG settings, which is
where you could stand to gain the most amount of memory back. I do see
you're definitely running a very restricted cachesize/idlcachesize. ;)
> What value did you set for "cachefree"?
[Rodrigo] cachefree 100
This value is likely substantially way too low for your system
configuration. This is how many entries get freed from any of the caches.
With your dncachesize being 3,000,000, removing 100 entries from it will do
hardly anything, and may be part of the issue. If it wasn't for the major
imbalance between your entry, idl, and dncachesizes, I would suggest a
fairly high value like 100,000. But given your entry cache is 20,000,
you'll probably have to limit the cachefree to 5000-10000. But it is going
to need to be higher than 100.
