First a bit of context.
CentOS 7, FreeIPA
A long time ago I was experiencing a deadlock during retro changelog cleanup
and I was advised to disable it as a workaround. Disabling was done by setting
nsslapd-changelogmaxage to -1. SInce then the number of entries grew to
about 3 million.
Last week I enabled maxage again. I set it to 470 days. I was hoping to limit
this pile of old changelog entries., starting by cleaning very old entries.
However, what I noticed is that it was removing entries with a pace of 16 entries
per second. Meanwhile the server was doing nothing. Server load was very low.
The real problem is that dirsrv (LDAP) is not responding to any requests anymore. I
had to disable maxage again, which requires patience restarting the server when
it is not responding ;-)
Now my questions
1) is it normal dat removing repo changelog entries is slooow?
2) why is dirsrv not responding anymore when the cleanup kicks in?
3) are there alternatives to cleanup the old repo changelog entries?
When the server is not responsive, can it process searches like
ldapsearch -b "" -s base ?
ldapsearch -D 'cn=direcrtory manager' -W -b "cn=config" -s base
or ldapsearch D 'cn=direcrtory manager' -W -b "cn=monitor" ?
hard coded in several other services, even though we have replica's.
These services will be hanging when I do this.
One thing I can say is that the following command was hanging.
ldap -H ldaps://rotte.example.com -b cn=config
Just a rough estimate. After 15 minutes I had to disable maxage again.
Regarding the low rate of trimming, how did you monitor it ? Are you using internal op logging, plugin log level or something else ?
Before and after I looked at the oldest entry. That way I saw it removed
about 15000 entries.
Is there any particular logging you can recommend?
As I said above, I'll have to pick the right moment to do this again.
When the server is not responsive, does it consum CPU ? Could you collect 'top -H -p `pidof ns-slapd` -b' and some pstack ?
Last time I got a lot of complaints from the users. :-(
