Re: slapd: closed (connection lost) messages

No.  It's network activity, not database activity.

Probably nothing is wrong.  You just have a naughty client which
terminates LDAP sessions by closing the connection, without
bothering to send an Unbind request first.  When that happens, all
slapd can tell is that the connection got lost - it can't tell why.
Which is why it's naughty of clients to do that:  The server admin
can't tell if there is a network problem or not.
