Re: AW: AW: Open LDAP and SNMP

Indeed , that would help to get snmp trap whenever slapd/slurp gets pb ! redirecting to snmp what is already done in syslog would be a first step.

Hi Jehan,

Yes, I know that it is not supported, therfore I posted my first email trying to figure out if community will find such support useful, and if yes - than in which exactly form.

Best regards, vadim tarassov.

I see, you're looking for slapd/slurpd embedded snmp trap support , I don't think it's alreary supported !?
[root@corbeau /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/openldap-2.1.16]
$ ./configure --help | grep -i snmp

nothing .

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.

Hallo everybody,

does anyone like an idea to extend Open LDAP with some SNMP features? It could be cool, if slapd could send a SNMP trap in case of its "major frustration"...

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 ...
