Software Enhancement Requests

Hi, we are currently rebuilding our LDAP tree using vendor current version of
software, including openLDAP.
I don't have much LDAP experience, so may be there is already a way to do this,
but I have not found it despite several trips to Google. etc..

Logging in openldap seems to be all via syslog and controlled by a value made up
by adding the code for a particular log entry of interest, all of which are sent
to syslog under one facility number.

I feel that logging could be improved by allowing logging similar to how BIND's
named does it, namely having different log files for queries, normal operational
logs and zone transfers (or in LDAP's case, replications).

This would make it much easier to monitor the activity of the server without
having  to grep out unwanted information to see the required detail.
