What version of OpenLDAP are you using? I was on the OpenLDAP mailing 
list not that long ago,  and the developers were tooting their own horns 
about how *fast* OpenLDAP was. However, I think those features that 
boost performance are in newer versions of OpenLDAP that are not 
included in RHEL yet. I'm using the version of OpenLDAP that comes with 
RHEL myself, so I can't confirm any claims. If performance is an issue, 
I'd get the latest version and compare that to whatever you're using now.
