SLAPD-BDB(5)

     NAME
          slapd-bdb - BDB backend to slapd

     SYNOPSIS
          /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

     DESCRIPTION
          The BDB backend to slapd(8) is the recommended backend for a
          normal slapd database.  It uses the Sleepycat BerkelyDB
          package to store data.  It makes extensive use of indexing
          and caching to speed data access.

     CONFIGURATION
          These slapd.conf options apply to the BDB backend database.
          That is, they must follow a "database bdb" line and come
          before any subsequent "backend" or "database" lines.  Other
          database options are described in the slapd.conf(5) manual
          page.

          cachesize <integer>
               Specify the size in entries of the in-memory cache
               maintained by the BDB backend database instance.  The
               default is 1000 entries.

          checkpoint <kbyte> <min>
               Specify the frequency for checkpointing the database
               transaction log.  A checkpoint operation flushes the
               database buffers to disk and writes a checkpoint record
               in the log.  The checkpoint will occur if either
               <kbyte> data has been written or <min> minutes have
               passed since the last checkpoint.  Both arguments
               default to zero, in which case they are ignored.  See
               the Berkeley DB reference guide for more details.

          dbnosync
               Specify that on-disk database contents should not be
               immediately synchronized with in memory changes.
               Enabling this option may improve performance at the
               expense of data security.

          directory <directory>
               Specify the directory where the BDB files containing
               this database and associated indexes live.  A separate
               directory must be specified for each database.  The
               default is /var/openldap-data.

          dirtyread
               Allow reads of modified but not yet committed data.
               Usually transactions are isolated to prevent other
               operations from accessing uncommitted data.  This
               option may improve performance, but may also return
               inconsistent results if the data comes from a
               transaction that is later aborted.  In this case, the
               modified data is discarded and a subsequent search will
               return a different result.

          index {<attrlist>|default} [pres,eq,approx,sub,<special>]
               Specify the indexes to maintain for the given attribute
               (or list of attributes).  Some attributes only support
               a subset of indexes.  If only an <attr> is given, the
               indices specified for default are maintained.  Note
               that setting a default does not imply that all
               attributes will be indexed.

               A number of special index parameters may be specified.
               The index type sub can be decomposed into subinitial,
               subany, and subfinal indices.  The special type nolang
               may be specified to disallow use of this index by
               language subtypes.  The special type nosubtypes may be
               specified to disallow use of this index by named
               subtypes.  Note: changing index settings requires
               rebuilding indices, see slapindex(8).

          lockdetect {oldest|youngest|fewest|random|default}
               Specify which transaction to abort when a deadlock is
               detected.  The default is the same as random.

          mode <integer>
               Specify the file protection mode that newly created
               database index files should have.  The default is 0600.
