cool !

There is no way we can answer such a question : there are so many 
factors ! Moreover, this is an open source software : you have the best 
possible solution, assuming you have made your own tests to guarantee 
that it fits your need.

However, it's stable, and some people are using ADS in production. I 
personally use it to manage access to many kind of resources, it's 
running for 3 months now, and it works just fine (ie, I don't have to 
take care). Now, it's probably not the kind of usage you might think of.

The last tests we have done, 5 months ago, on a 8 way CPU, proved that 
we were able to deliver around 13 000 random search requests per second, 
on a 5 million base. On my laptop (centrino duo, 2Ghz), my own little 
test (random searches for entries on a 10K entry base), I'm able to 
deliver 3900 req/s (bind/unbind excluded).

hope it helps...
