OpenLDAP King of the Hill - OpenLDAP Chief Architect Interview

OpenLDAP Suretec saw a sneak peak before it was out, but we're glad to say it's unchanged and a cracker!

Have a read:

Isode's M-Vault 14 versus OpenLDAP

OpenLDAP Howard Chu from Symas and Chief Architect of OpenLDAP has just finished some interesting benchmarks of Isode's M-Vault 14 versus OpenLDAP:

I recently tested Isode's M-Vault 14. For the most part there were no surprises, we were 5-6 times faster on the 1M entry DB. Load times were comparable, with OpenLDAP at around 3 minutes (as before) and Isode at around 4 minutes. While OpenLDAP delivered over 29,000 auths/sec using 8 cores, Isode delivered only 4600 auths/sec. (And there's still the interesting result that OpenLDAP delivered almost 31,000/sec using only 7 cores, leaving one core reserved for the ethernet driver.)
