Following your advice I found a perl script called slurpd_status.pl (*)
that I integrated to my nagios server. It monitors entries in transition,
rejected and waiting. I did a few satisfactory tests.
What else do you think I should do concerning replication?
I know slurpd is deprecated and I plan to move to syncrepl ASAP.

I'm using logcheck (from the FreeBSD ports) to monitor my system
logs. AFAICS it is similar to logwatch and can certainly be used to
monitor slapd's logs. What unexpected or error output do you
think should raise alarms? What loglevel do you recommand for slapd?
