gLite Berkley Database Information Index (BDII)


The Berkeley Database Information Index (BDII) consists of two or more standard LDAP databases that are populated by an update process. Port forwarding is used to enable one database to serve data while the other is refreshing. The update process obtains LDIF from either doing an ldapsearch on LDAP URLs or by running a local script that generates LDIF. The LDIF is then inserted into the LDAP database. Options exist to update the the list of LDAP URLs from a web page and to use an LDIF file from a web page to modify the data before inserting it into the database.
