Subject Re: PostgreSQL as backend
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2009 02:41:01 GMT
Thanks. Speaking of performance, we have records in our PostgreSQL 
database that references contacts in our LDAP. We want to do LFAP 
lookups as part of our database SQL calls. To do this we use a Perl 
lookup function but for large queries it is quite slow. If the records 
were already in a PostgreSQL database then we should be able to make 
better benefit of internal indexes and keys. Thanks again. David
