Can anyone tell me whether OpenLDAP has provisions for a client to
determine whether a connection has timed out proactively instead of
alerting a user that the connection has been closed due to timeout only

roll my own method of keeping the connection alive through a periodic
query of some sort.

You might look at the persistent search function in my Stanford::Directory perl module:


which tests to see if the connection has closed, and if it has, reopens it, before performing a search.
