I would also tune the TCP heartbeat in sysctl to make it shorter
rather than the idle timeout. the default is 2 hours and not to cut it
off if heartbeats are missed. I prefer to make it 2 minutes and kill
on the second missed heartbeat for LDAP servers. the reason for this
is that there are a lot of sloppy LDAP clients out there that exit
without closing their connections. btw heartbeats only happen when a
TCP session is open and idle, they don't happen when there is active
traffic. here is a howto that will explain more
Changing the TCP heartbeat settings on the server wont add any
overhead because its already there in the kernel any way, also its a
good way to filter out bad clients that left zombie connections open
but won't break clients that are legitimately idle, but will reuse the
connections later. Zombie connections are what usually cause LDAP
servers to hit the max open file limit, not legitimately idle
connections, so it's always a good place to start tuning your LDAP
