NAME         top

       slapd-monitor - Monitor backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS         top

       ETCDIR/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.  Requesting attribute "+" is an extension
       which requests all operational attributes.

CONFIGURATION         top

       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.  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.

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

USAGE         top

       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         top

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

KNOWN LIMITATIONS         top

       The monitor backend does not honor size/time limits in search
       operations.

FILES         top
