Net::LDAP question

by seeker (Curate)
on Dec 13, 2000 at 16:58 UTC ( #46401=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

seeker has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been asked to prepare a load tester for a LDAP implementation. This implementation has added some new elements to a directory. I am very unfamiliar with LDAP. Will Net::LDAP allow me to use these new elements, or will I have to write this thing in C(ugh!)? If someone has tried something similar, please let me know if it can be done.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I'm not really sure what you mean by "load tester". Is it a program to load data to the database or is it a program to generate load on the ldap server?

    If you want to test to load data into your database, Net::LDAP will do just fine. You can access any attribute in your schema with it.

    I tried to write a load generator with Net::LDAP but ldap servers are generally _very_ fast so perl have trouble to keep up with them. My program ate all resources from the test-machine, which was 3 times as fast as the server, and the server was idle :)
    I finally had to do a multi-threaded c thing...

    If you want to do a load generator, do it in c :( sad to say ), or try out the Net:LDAPapi (it's pretty old but might be a way to do it in perl).
