The XDASv2 specification provides a standardized classification for audit events. It defines a set of generic events at a global distributed system level. XDASv2 provides a common portable audit record format to facilitate the merging and analysis of audit information from multiple components at the distributed system level. The XDASv2 events are encapsulated within a hierarchical notational system that helps to extend the standard or existing event identifier set. eDirectory 8.8 SP6 supports XDASv2 format to log eDirectory events into the syslog.

The output from ldapsearch is sent to stdout as LDIF (LDAP Interchange Format). The format is reasonably readable, but not very flexible. In particular, lines longer than 78 characters are split, with the following line starting with a space. In many cases it is necessary to post-process the output to make it more readable. To obtain the output in single line one useful trick is that piping the LDIF through perl will undo the line splitting mentioned above (lines starting with a space are joined to the previous line). Use the following command of perl to undo the splitting.
