This has bug has pretty much destroyed my IPA deployment.......I had a pretty

fix....boy did that open up a can of worms.....


In my case I cant see how its churn as I have so few entries (<50) and Im adding no more 
items at present....unless a part of ipa is "replicating and diffing" in the 
background to check consistency?

I also have only one way replication now at most,  master to replica and no 
memory leak shows in Munin at present.........

but I seem to be faced with a rebuild from scratch.......
Did you do the "max entry cache size" tuning? If you did, what did you set it 

Did you do any other tuning from the 389-ds tuning guide?

When I had similar problems using Feodra (Not Redhat or CentOS) my underlying 
issues were: managed entries firing off any time an object was updated (every 
time someone successfully authenticates, kerberos updates the user object, 
which in turn would touch the mepmanaged entry for the user's private group)  
Similar things happened when hostgroups were modified...

This was further complicated by inefficiencies in the way that slapi-nis was 
processing the compat pieces for the sudo rules and the netgroups (which are 
automatically create from every hostgroup)

Thus, when memberof fired off, slapi-nis recomputed a great deal of its chunk...

After getting those issues resolved, I tuned the max entry cache size.  But it 
took all the fixes to finally resolve the memory creep problem.

It is not at all clear to me whether or not the bug fixes for my problem have 
made it up into Redhat / CentOS though...  The slapi-nis versions definitely 
don't line up between fedora and redhat/centos...

Perhaps Nalin Or Rich can speak to some of that.

The bug itself was easiest to replicate with _big_ changes like deleting a 
group that had a great number of members for example, but the symptoms were 
similar for me were similar for day to date operation resulting in consumption 
that never freed.


Are either of you currently utilizing sudo?

I read your bug report a while back, and made sure that slapi-nis was disabled.

I have tuned my cache size to 256MB. I believe that should be OK as my cache 
hit ratio sits at 97-99% ?

I understand you have a farily large deployment, what cache size are you using? 
Are you using Fedora or Red Hat / CentOS as your production environment?

I do not use sudo with IPA yet, I am planning for doing that later. Is there 
any issues I should be aware of with sudo integration?

Was there a bug in managed entries that's been fixed in the current 389-ds 
versions available in Red Hat / CentOS  6?


Ya it is true that I do have a large environment, but some of the hurdles that 
I had to jump appeared to be ones that weren't related so much to the number of 
hosts I had, but rather their amount of activity.  I.e. automated single-sign 
on scripts, people authenticating, general binds taking place all over...

I am using Fedora with FreeIPA 2.2 pending a migration to RHEL 6.3 and IPA 2.2

Ok, we have a fair amount of logons happening too with Nagios running lots of ssh connections to the hosts, as well as normal users. Can't really disable that. :)

I see your cache size is 100MB, that's less than half of mine. I increased my cache quite a bit as I was advised by Rich about a bug that's not been fixed in RHEL 6.2 version of 389-ds related to when entries in cache is being removed to make room for new cache entries. I was hoping for that issue would go away with a large cache size.
