The PingDirectory Server provides several tools to help you optimize your indexes and improve the overall read and write performance for your system.
To process high write load operations, the server supports an optional expanded index database using an exploded format. To view the current state of the server's indexes and make adjustments to the index databases, the Directory Server automatically generates an Index Summary Statistics table after each LDIF import or index rebuild. To determine the key data size for the indexes, the dbtest tool includes an index histogram. This section describes each of these tools.
