Right, the loglevel is a global variable. And that doesn't look
like it could be easily changed either, since much of the logging
happens outside of the backend which handles the meat of the

No, what slapd.conf(5) calls a "backend definition" a bit earlier is
a section of slapd.conf starting with "backend <foo>". And what it
means is apparently either that or a "database <foo>" section, at
least in the case of "sizelimit" and "access" statements. Could use
some clarification, I'll file a documentation ITS for it.
