Hi Kevin,

I am using OpenLDAP in our environment. I've been thinking to migrate FDS.

I was wondering how FDS compares with OpenLDAP in terms of performance.

If you don't mind me asking how big is your current LDAP
infrastructure in terms of entries and number of connections/sec.? How
well your test FDS performs compare to your current LDAP server?

I would appreciate your input.
