Thank you for the replies. Yes, Oracle makes the hardware, but as you
may have experienced when dealing with Oracle, if there is anything on
the server that is not "Oracle", then the problem must be with that
software. (This is the response you will get from Oracle on just about
BDB is owned by Oracle, so they should be able to help you with it. The
creation of the BDB log files is *purely* a function internal to BDB. The
fact that they are exploding would be a function of BDB. That is why I've
repeatedly said there is no indication of an OpenLDAP bug here. That is
why Howard directed you to Oracle. They are the ones who own BDB, they
should be able to provide you insight into why it has broken on your new
BDB logs are created when changes are made to the database. If you see
your logs "exploding" without corresponding massive changes being made to
the OpenLDAP server, then you are essentially ensured that the issue is
with BDB. I would also suggest you run the db_archive utility to see what
log(s) it says can or can't be archived. It is possible that BDB is
holding open a write or read transaction for some reason (again, a BDB bug).
As for MDB, it is a new database written by Howard Chu, the primary
OpenLDAP Developer. You can read up on it at <http://symas.com/mdb/>
is significantly better than BDB in numerous ways. I disagree with your
