By default, Linux servers running the ext3 file system flush the data to disk every five seconds.

  1. If the Directory Server is running on a Linux server using the ext3 file system, consider editing the mount options for that file system to include the following command.

    This variable changes the flush frequency from five seconds to one second.

  2. You should also set the flush frequency in the /etc/fstab file.
    Changing the mount command alone does not survive across reboots.
