Monitoring OpenLDAP with Python

This lightning talk highlights how to monitor OpenLDAP in detail with Python module slapdcheck.

OpenLDAP servers are typically used as backed for authentication (login) and other mission-critical infrastructure components. Furthermore OpenLDAP setups can be non-trivial resulting in higher risk that something could go wrong.

The talk will introduce the Python module package slapdcheck which implements monitor checks for OpenLDAP servers: * performance data * allocated back-mdb pages * need for restart * replication state

slapdcheck parses cn=config to automatically adjust monitoring checks based on current running configuration.
