Where is it documented how the conf file slapd.conf file is processed?

Seriously, please me at it.
The slapd configuration is broken up into parts. This is well described in
the slapd.conf(5) man page:
The slapd.conf file consists of a series of global
options that apply to slapd as a whole (including all backends),
lowed by zero or more database backend definitions that contain
mation specific to a backend instance. The configuration options
case-insensitive; their value, on a case by case basis, may be
The global section is covered in the main slapd.conf/cn=config man pages.
It is even clearly titled so as "GLOBAL CONFIGURATION OPTIONS" in the man
page itself. The slapd.conf/cn=config man pages also cover the general
database options that apply to all backends (or as otherwise noted in that
section). Options specific to a given backend are clearly documented in
the man pages for that backend, such as back-hdb, back-bdb, etc. This is
also clearly detailed in the slapd.conf/cn=config man pages:
Each database may allow specific configuration options; they
documented separately in the backends' manual pages. See
slapd.backends(5) manual page for an overview of available backends.
In any case, it all looks pretty clear to me.
