openldap slurpd-like replication log?

Our support staff find having a transaction record really helpful in
researching issues, but find our IDM logs very chatty when turned up to
the levels where they can see the changes they're looking for.

OpenLDAP (<2.3) slurpd created a replication log, which wasn't a great
way to handle server replication, but did produce a running LDIF of all
the changes that hit the LDAP server.
I was wondering if anyone had created a driver to do something similar
(i.e. a driver that takes xds and spits out LDIFs on the file system).
Or maybe, had created stylesheets to go from XDS to LDIF (maybe by way
of DSML?)

Re: openldap slurpd-like replication log?

Why not just use the DT shim (assuming you have an activation for it) and
spit out the XML directly? It can do this without much work at all and
then you'd have exactly what happened, at what time, on which server,
which is more than you'll get from an LDIF. Even nicer, you'll have
documents that you could enter into a test system to test what happens
after you make a change that fixes an issues, modifies behaviors, etc.

On the other hand, what you're looking for is auditing. If you point
eDirectory to something like Sentinel or Log Manager (which has a free,
basic version for use indefinitely) you could easily see what happened in
a searchable format.

Good luck.
