Re: OpenLDAP Statistics
Thank you for the tips.
- The LDAP Modify-Increment Extension will be useful to avoid one extra call to ldapsearch.

operation type and contextCSN)."
- Having multiple accesslogs or not delete the entries will cause to have very long results. In the other hand, the daemon also delete the entries every X time, and it's possible to have a deletion of entries
before a daemon search.

- slapo-lastbind seems interesting, I will take a look to it. I it works
I don't care if I don't register every user failedBinds. I'm concerned
about SASL, but for now we are not using it.

- Yes, pwdFailureTime is mantained by slapo-ppolicy but is a global value, not a user value.

You might wanna use slapo-lastbind in contrib/ for this. This maintains an operational attribute 'authTimestamp' in the user entry which records the last bind time. Unfortunately this seems to only work for LDAP simple binds. With SASL bind the attribute is not updated.

Attribute 'pwdFailureTime' is already maintained by slapo-ppolicy. The count of attribute values is the number of password failures.
The fact is that I searched for ways of gathering statistics of account usage.
The alternatives that I found were:
First, save the statistics in 2 attributes in each user: lastBind, failedBinds.
Yes, this is another option but depending on your deployment the accesslog DB will grow very large very soon if you log all binds.
2. Act on the LDAP server and activate the "overlay accesslog" funcionality.
In this case, monitor every bind operation, then create a daemon that reads
every X time the LDAP accesslog tree and process it.
