Experimenting with 2.5.4 I wonder what are reasonable values for
applying multival to attribute 'member' in group entries.
I guess this depends on length of member DN values. Is there a clear way
to calculate this? Or how to find out the effect of current settings.
P.S.: Yes, I know I have to reload the database when adding multival
Not mandatory. Of course if you don't reload, then the setting won't have
any effect on existing data. But if you modify an entry and relevant attribute
after making the config change, then it will take effect for that entry.
I suppose a rule of thumb is to try to keep entries small enough to fit
in a few pages. Larger than that and you're wasting a lot of I/O to update
a single value in it.
