I'm using Jmeter to do the tests. It really sends requests to the
server, I bet.

My computer is a little bit loaded at the moment ;) And as I'm just
doing a very simplistic bind/search/unbind request, it's not really a
search test.

you mean apacheds ~ openldap? or that we have the same values in the
Throuhput column?

This is the good column, but just forget about the Total Throughput.

However, do NOT take this test as something serious ;) This is just a
little test I did to help us keeping the good pace. We have a pretty
fast Ldap Server, which need a LOT of work to be production-ready.
Sometime we also need some good marks ;)
