The PingDirectory server monitors replication in the following ways:

  • Use the dsreplication tool with the status subcommand to display basic information about the replicated base distinguish names (DNs), the number of entries replicated, as well as the approximate size of replication backlogs at each PingDirectory server.
  • Obtain more detailed information about the state of replication through the information exposed in its monitoring framework under cn=monitor.

Administrators can monitor their replication topologies using several tools and protocols:
