slapd-monitor (5oldap)

Name

slapd-monitor - Monitor backend to slapd

Synopsis

/etc/openldap/slapd.conf

Description

SLAPD-MONITOR(5oldap)                                    SLAPD-MONITOR(5oldap)



NAME
       slapd-monitor - Monitor backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       To  inspect  all  monitor information, issue a subtree search with base
       cn=Monitor, requesting that attributes "+" and "*" are  returned.   The
       monitor  backend  produces mostly operational attributes, and LDAP only
       returns operational attributes that are explicitly requested.  Request-
       ing  attribute  "+"  is  an  extension  which  requests all operational
       attributes.

CONFIGURATION
       These slapd.conf options apply to the monitor backend  database.   That
       is, they must follow a "database monitor" line and come before any sub-
       sequent "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.  The suffix is auto-
       matically set to "cn=Monitor".

       The monitor database honors the rootdn and the rootpw  directives,  and
       the usual ACL directives, e.g. the access directive.

       Other database options are described in the slapd.conf(5) manual page.

USAGE
       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.

ACCESS CONTROL
       The  monitor  backend  honors  access control semantics as indicated in
       slapd.access(5), including the disclose access privilege, on  all  cur-
       rently implemented operations.

KNOWN LIMITATIONS
       The  monitor  backend  does not honor size/time limits in search opera-
       tions.
