Did you ever want to know how many objects there are in your tree or in a given organizational unit?
SOLUTION: Forget about traversing the tree and counting the objects that you run into - let eDirectory do the count for you:
Simply use the operational attribute "subordinateCount" in your (LDAP): Set your filter to "( subordinateCount > 0 )" and retrieve the "subordinateCount" from your results.
What you get is a list of containers with their respective number of child objects. The rest is adding numbers.
