       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:

       l <locality>
              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:

              configure --enable-monitor

       2) activate the monitor database in the
              slapd.conf(5) file:

              database monitor

       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
