Are you saying syncrepl is known to be broken? Or shoddy in general? I find the whole issue that a "top level" of a tree can disappear, but the tree itself still works to be troubling. Perhaps BerkeleyDB broken?

I did look at delta-syncrepl, but it never ran very well, and seemed quite over complicated for marginal gains. As I understood it, syncrepl always sends entire records, whereas delta-syncrepl can update just the attribute of a record. This did not sound like it would make any difference. Is my understanding incorrect?

This is what I added to the slapd.conf on master when testing it. Currently, not on the production servers.

*** In the middle of slapd.conf

# delta-syncrepl needs full access
access to *
        by dn.base="cn=replicator,dc=company,dc=com" read
        by * break

*** At the end of slapd.conf

overlay accesslog
logdb "cn=deltalog"
