Goal


Question:

When we change nsslapd-db-transaction-batch-val parameter by dsconf (with property name db-batched-transaction-count),
"Directory Server must be restarted for changes to take effect" message is shown.
----------------------------------------------------
# ./dsconf set-server-prop -p 389 db-batched-transaction-count:5
Enter "cn=Directory Manager" password:
Directory Server must be restarted for changes to take effect.

# ./ldapsearch -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w password -p 389 -b "cn=config,cn=ldbm database,c
n=plugins,cn=config" objectclass=extensibleObject nsslapd-db-transaction-batch-val
version: 1
dn: cn=config,cn=ldbm database,cn=plugins,cn=config
nsslapd-db-transaction-batch-val: 5
dn: cn=default indexes, cn=config,cn=ldbm database,cn=plugins,cn=config
----------------------------------------------------
We can change this parameter directly by ldapmodify too.

But even we do not restart the server after changing nsslapd-db-transaction-batch-val value, the performance seems improved.

manual says as follows:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29127_01/doc.111170/e28967/nsslapd-db-transaction-batch-val-5dsconf.htm
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This attribute can be dynamically modified using ldapmodify.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

To take effect the parameter change, do we really need to restart the server?
Or dsconf message is wrong and we don't need to restart the server with either case, dsconf or ldapmodify?
