The db4-utils package shipped with RHEL5/CentOS 5 has *nothing* to do with the 
database library the openldap package uses, please check the output of:

ldd /usr/sbin/slapd|grep db

You should get something like this:
$ ldd /usr/sbin/slapd|grep db
        libslapd_db-4.4.so => /usr/lib64/tls/libslapd_db-4.4.so

There are some syncrepl monitoring scripts. I provide one for Xymon, which 
also does some performance trending, and there are some for Nagios.

You haven't said anything about your topology. For example, is there a firewall 
between the provider and the consumer? syncrepl in 2.3 doesn't recover from a 
stale connection.
