To reduce the database entry size, entities can be compressed. The compressed entry results in improved performance through reducing the number of overflow pages in large databases.
Configure compressed-entries to specify the entries that need to be compressed.
$ dsconf set-suffix-prop -p port-number dc=example,dc=com compressed-entries:all
For more information, see compressed-entries(5dsconf)
Configure compression-mode to specify the compression technique.
$ dsconf set-suffix-prop -p port-number dc=example,dc=com compression-mode:DSZ
For more information, see compression-mode(5dsconf)
