Hi,
I have a requirement to have around 20 million records into LDAP.
Can this sort of data be supported by Netscape Directory Server?
How is the performance for querying and updating the data in LDAP under these circumstances?
Would appreciate if anybody can share their experience with large database in LDAP.
Thanks and regards,
Bhupesh

I would believe a major issue is that Netscape's LDAP sevrer stores its records in a file structure -- I'm not sure how well that will scale to millions of entries. On the other hand, there are other LDAP directories (such as IBM's) based on commercial relational databases that have been shown to scale to millions of records without problems.
