Re: run command when change to ou=something,dc=example,dc=com was made?

I have a program that reads data from ou=something,dc=example,dc=com,

It currently runs from cron, but as the changes are made rather seldom
(but should be made almost immediately), I feel that this constant
pulling of OpenLDAP server, creating config files, running from crontab
every few minutes is a little waste of resources.
Is it possible to configure OpenLDAP in a way, that when a change to
ou=something,dc=example,dc=com was made (and *only* to ou=something; it
shouldn't notify if the change was done to ou=Users etc.), it executes a
command/creates a file etc.?
Basically, what you are looking for is called "persistent search". When
the server supports the persistent search control, and the client API
supports the same, you can write a persistent search enabled client.
The Net::LDAP perl module has client side support for persistent search,
