At a specified interval, the Stats Logger can write server statistics to a JSON file or to a log file in a comma-separated value (.csv) format.

The logger has a negligible impact on server performance unless the log-interval property is set to a very small value (less than 1 second). You can customize the statistics logged and their verbosity.

You can also use the Stats Logger to view historical information about server statistics including LDAP operations, host information, and gauges. Your options include:
  • Update the configuration of the existing Stats Logger Plugin to set the advanced gauge-info property to basic/extended to include this information.
  • Create a dedicated Periodic Stats Logger for information about statistics of interest.
