Quick question regarding "maxsize" in mdb, slapd-mdb man page says we have to preallocate the db size based on future growth of your data, that means will it create a data.mdb of maxsize? what i read from docs is, mdb loads whole database into memory, is it right? if my db size is grater then my RAM how does mdb handles? do we have any configuration options to set RAM allocation for mdb as i may have other applications sharing the same RAM?

It is generally recommended not to use the rootdn for replication.
