Description Bernie Innocenti 2005-09-17 23:02:16 EDT
Description of problem:

OpenLDAP 2.2.26 has a scheduling bug that makes any query crawl
under moderate CPU load (even nice load).

This is again the usual sched_yield() behavior change that has
haunted OpenOffice and other applications.

This issue has been recently discussed on LKML and in OpenLDAP's
bug-tracking system.  One of the authors recommends upgrading to
2.3.7.  Is there a chance we can get this in rawhide or even FC4?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start a long-running CPU-bound process such as gcc
2.try some LDAP queries and measure with time or strace -t
Comment 1 Bernie Innocenti 2005-11-24 21:46:28 EST
OpenLDAP 2.3.11 has been included in fedora-development.

By the way, the bug I was moaning about is still there.
I will complain upstream.

Applying the attached patch to openldap-2.3.11 fixed the problem for me.
Please include it in the package patch set until it's available from upstream.

Problem appears to be fixed in FC5 with openldap 2.3.19.
