Description Joe Guo (mail address dead) 2018-10-18 03:48:08 UTC
I am trying to generate 50k users, 5k groups, and add each user to about 10 groups which produce 500k memberships with `script/traffic_replay`. 

store backend is tdb. Server is a openstack instance with 4 CPUs and 4G mem.

The creation of users and groups are working fine, but adding users to groups will fail with lock error. 

The error is stable, I reproduced the error when I tried it again for a few times.

mdb is working fine.

Error message:
