I assume this section would be on how to configure back-monitor via 
back-config, for now, converting your slapd.conf (that you set up for 
back-monitor in 13.3) would do what is necessary. If you use a slapd.conf, 
this is irrelevant for you at present.

Here is the one I use for performance and replication monitoring with Hobbit 
(but I also use it stand-alone).
