To enable monitoring in 2.0.X you need to define SLAPD_MONITOR_DN;
you won't have any monitor backend, but simply a "cn=monitor" entry
with a few stats.  Note that this didn't work for a while due to
some frontend and backend API changes, so I don't know about 2.0.25

The monitor backend was introduced with 2.1
