I've started trying apacheds1.0-RC3, I was trying to figure out ways to

a. Specify any tuning parameters like max no of threads (readers), to control no of concurrent requests server can handle, backlog size etc.

b. Start multiple instances of apacheds server (to have failover). If yes, can they share the same data partition (NFS could be an option ?)

c. Fast, command line tool to export LDIF from the server (for backup purposes).
