Limiting Schema Replication

By default, whenever the replication mechanism replicates the schema, it sends the entire schema to its consumers. In the following situation, it is not desirable to send the entire schema to consumers:

Modifications to cn=schema using DSCC or from the command-line are limited to the user-defined schema elements, and all of the standard schema are unchanged. If you modify the schema often, sending the large set of unchanged schema elements every time has a performance impact. You might be able to improve replication and server performance by replicating only the user-defined schema elements.

ProcedureTo Limit Schema Replication

You cannot use DSCC to perform this task. Use the command line, as described in this procedure.

  1. Limit schema replication so that only the user-defined schema is replicated.

    $ dsconf set-server-prop -h host -p port repl-user-schema-enabled:on

    The default value, off, causes the entire schema to be replicated when necessary.
