Question

Has anyone measured performance metrics (read, write, bind, anything) on directory servers? Which tool should I use (instead of writing my own shell script with ldapsearch, ldapbind and ldapmodify commands)?

Purpose

I'd like to show the degree of performance increase by load balancing between two replicated LDAP instances. Is OpenDJ's LDAP toolkit adequate for this purpose?

Thanks in advance for any help!

We had successfully deployed and used SLAMD (http://dl.thezonemanager.com/slamd/) for distributed load generation and performance analysis on our LDAP servers. I believe its author, Neil Wilson, no longer supports and/or improves it. The related story is told at the link I provided. Apache JMeter (http://jmeter.apache.org/index.html) can also be used to conduct load generation on LDAP servers and obtain performance metrics.
