It's funny you mention OpenLDAP, since most of what I've learned about
BDB in the past year has been because of the work I did to upgrade my
site's primary and secondary LDAP servers to OpenLDAP 2.4.25.

OpenLDAP, being long-running and highly performance-sensitive, demands a
lot more tuning of BDB than RPM does and not all of the same
considerations will apply, but learning something about BDB for one of
those two packages will still help with tuning the other.
