AW: Open LDAP and SNMP

Hi Jehan,

thanx a lot for reply. In your report you suggest to poll ldap server, however I ment something different - imagine the partition where ldap keeps his db's became full. This will make ldap server to become "read-only". I believe it will be cool if ldap server would be able to send snmp trap on such occasion. Although this example is rather meaningless (because net-snmp agent is able to monitor available space in a partition) one can imagine situations where such kind of notification will help to identify problem rather fast. As another less stupid example please consider following: for some odd reason slurpd is not able to update his replica. If you don't look in log files you will hardly notice this early enough.

best regards, vadim tarassov.

I did a doc on enabling back-monitor coupled with snmpd-mrtg-rrd tools 
to graphically monitor openldap server:


it might help ...
