If your policy requires you to use packages as supplied by a particular vendor
it would make sense for your policy to also require that vendor to support
those packages. I.e., go to RedHat and make them earn the fees you're paying
them. If they don't help you, then you should seriously reconsider why you're
paying them in the first place...

On similar hardware, (1750 with 2GB ram, 36GB in RAID1 with a hot spare), but
with approximately the same cachesize in DB_CONFIG (as there are other
databases), one of our similarly sized databases (~ 450 000 entries, ~420MB
of raw ldif), takes less than two hours to import (on 2.3.x). I don't have
stats for 2.2.
Best case for 2.2 slapadd was 2x slower than 2.3. Worst case depended how much
indexing was configured.
