To configure the server for a disk-bound configuration, follow these steps:

  1. When installing the server, choose the "aggressive" option for JVM memory configuration and to preload the data when the server starts.
  2. Set the default-cache-mode of the userRoot backend to cache-keys-only.
  3. Set operating system vm.swappiness to 0 to protect the Directory Server JVM process from an overly aggressive file system cache.
  4. When the data set is imported with the above settings, verify in the import-ldif output that the cached portions of the data set fit comfortably within the database cache.
