Symptoms on Linux x64 crashing (no core file, no error log output other "detected disorderly shutdown" for crash)
Looks like crash caused by running out of memory.

From dmesg -
Out of memory: Kill process 8976 (ns-slapd) score 975 or sacrifice child
Killed process 8976, UID 1234, (ns-slapd) total-vm:18016140kB, anon-rss:15881908
kB, file-rss:2360kB

Similar process size growth is  reported from another customer on Solaris/SPARC as well.


This started to happen just after upgrading to without any configuration/data change.
