    Default Create 30000 accounts as quick as possible?

    Dear All,

    for a urgent testing case, we need to create thousands of accounts in ZCS and do email-sending test. I'm running a script something like below for this purpose :

    while [ $count -le 30000 ]; do
    zmprov ca guest$count$mydomain 111111

    but it's kind of slow.
    Can anyone provide is there fast way to create 30000 accounts in ZCS?

    Thanks in advance.

    Every time you run zmprov or zmmailbox, it has to crank up a new JVM thread which is a lot of overhead; however, you can run it in batch mode.
    ie: It would be better to aggregate a list of actions and then send them all to one instance of zmprov:

    nano /tmp/
    while [ $COUNTER -lt 30000 ]; do
    echo "ca testing$ password" 1>>/tmp/provision.txt
    chmod 744
    zmprov < /tmp/provision.txt
    Or zmprov -f /tmp/provision.txt

    Infact it may be faster to do it via LDAP directly (zmprov -l < provision.txt) instead of mailboxd/Java/SOAP; though I haven't done an analysis in this case - some commands will need to talk to the mailbox server anyways.

    Just ran it on a vm with 512mb ram ~1ghz proc dedicated to it (ZCS 6.0.0 D2, all default settings, no Java/LDAP tweaks):
    - Less than 30sec to make the .txt
    - Creates roughly 10k accounts every 10 minutes (ran zmaccts every so often in other terminal)
