slapd-monitor - Monitor backend to slapd
The monitor backend to slapd(8) is not an actual database; if enabled,
it is automatically generated and dynamically maintained by slapd with
information about the running status of the daemon.
These slapd.conf options apply to the monitor backend database. That
is, they must follow a "database monitor" line and come before any
subsequent "backend" or "database" lines. As opposed to most
databases, the monitor database can be instantiated only once, i.e.
only one occurrence of "database monitor" can occur in the
slapd.conf(5) file. Moreover, the suffix of the database cannot be
explicitly set by means of the suffix directive; on the contrary, the
suffix is automatically set to "cn=Monitor".
The monitor database honors the rootdn and the rootpw directives, and
the usual ACL directives, e.g. the access directive.
The following directives can be used:
The <locality> string is added to the "cn=Monitor" entry as
value of the l attribute (Note: this may be subjected to
Other database options are described in the slapd.conf(5) manual page.
The usage is:
1) enable the monitor backend at configure:
2) activate the monitor database in the
3) add ACLs as detailed in
slapd.access(5) to control access to the database, e.g.:
access to dn.subtree="cn=Monitor"
by dn.exact="uid=Admin,dc=my,dc=org" write
by users read
by * none
4) ensure that the core.schema file is loaded.
The monitor backend relies on some standard track attributeTypes
that must be already defined when the backend is started.
The monitor backend does not honor size/time limits in search
