A Forum reader recently asked:

“Is it possible to count LDAP searches or binds with eDirectory (not by ndstrace and then analyzing the Log file). Perhaps there’s a special property in the LDAP server object?”

And here’s the response from Akos Szechy …


You can get the counters from the RootDSE object. Run this:

ldapsearch -h ip -p 389 -x -s base objectclass=*

Then, look for these:

  • wholeSubtreeSearchOps
  • oneLevelSearchOps
  • searchOps
  • strongAuthBinds
  • simpleAuthBinds
  • unAuthBinds
