Description Noriko Hosoi 2017-01-28 02:11:28 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

DB_DEADLOCK can happen quite frequently this is why transactions are started with DB_TXN_NOWAIT and deadlock is managed (retry) by backend code.

When there are too many retries (49), the operation fails.
The problem is that when the operation fails (because of too many deadlocks) it is difficult to identify the threads that triggered the deadlock and propose workarounds.

For debug reason it could be interesting to have a new configuration option 'nsslapd-db-txn-begin-flags' (in 'cn=config,cn=ldbm database,cn=plugins,cn=config') to call txn_begin.
By default the option is DB_TXN_NOWAIT
