For using db_stat, Should the DB_HOME environment variable be pointing to

I'm in production and i would like to know if there is a risk in playing
with this.  I have openldap 2.2.28 with berkeley db 4.3.28.

The DB Home environment is wherever you have deployed your database, so most likely /usr/local/var/openldap-data/.

If you had no DB_CONFIG file, creating one and setting stuff in it will not have any effect until you:

Shut down the slapd process
run db_recover
Start the slapd process

Do *not* run db_recover while slapd is running.
