Understanding DIB size

Hi all. Some background, we've been cleaning up un-necessary data from our eDirectory. Mainly old RBAC related attributes, but also some other custom objects we use. We're talking 3-5 GB of raw data.

Having cleared this data out, I expected I would see a relative reduction in the iMonitor reported DIB size, give or take 10%. Obviously a big assumption as I dont know how Flaim stores data exactly - but i'm assuming it doesn't compress any data.

Anyway having clear out a lot of data, the corresponding reduction (after ndsrepair reclaim space) in iMonitor was only about %50 - eg removing 3GB of data resulted in DIB size dropping by 1.5GB.

Tried ndsrepair reclaim space, rebuild database - no difference. 

Lastly there is a big discrepancy between replicas - the lowest shows 9.5GB, and another replica, same partitions, 13GB.  The only difference I see is the 13GB replica has IDM drivers running (the 9.5GB server has the driver set, but doesnt run any drivers)

Any advice appreciated !
