I think this question pertains to the -software list, if you
are aiming at developing a client that exploits these features;
this list would be appropriate if you intend to discuss the
devlopment of syncrepl into slapd.

To learn about the protocol, I suggest you take a look at some
docs, before digging into the code.  You may find something at


I personally witnessed very interesting presentations on the
subject at the Vienna meeting.

The code is essentially in servers/slapd/syncrepl.c (original
naming fro the location, isn't it? :), and, of course,
servers/slapd/{slap,proto-slapd}.h for type/func declaration.
