I was wondering lately if I could use OpenLDAP as a 'generic' hierarchical data store for the application I'm planning, and tried to get any hint about feasibility. I found a blog post about OpenDS (http://blogs.sun.com/treydrake/entry/ldap_vs_relational_database), where the author states about Read/write performance parity ... That was the kind of news I just wanted to hear because I'm thinking about a persistence back-end, not just an almost static dataset, but I'm in a genuine PHP environment and Java is not an option; so I naturally tried to get some infos regarding OpenLDAP performance but found nothing recent, and the references I could find are quite discouraging on that matter ...
However since 4 to 8 years have passed since the tests I've been reading, I'm still in the hope of a 'a pleasant surprise' as the sun guy sayz ...
Does someone has an experience to share about that kind of (mis-)usage of OpenLDAP ?
Any pointers to some good and recent reference on the matter are of course well come.
I suggest you read the material available on the OpenLDAP website. There's no other LDAP server that I've found that performs as well as OpenLDAP, period.
