The Directory Proxy Server ships with a built-in
Stats Logger that is useful for profiling server performance for a given configuration. At a
specified interval, the Stats Logger writes server statistics to a log file in a
comma-separated format (.csv), which can be read by spreadsheet applications. 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). The statistics logged and their verbosity
can be customized.
The Stats Logger can also be used to view historical information about server statistics including
replication, LDAP operations, host information, and gauges. Either update the configuration of the existing
Stats Logger Plugin to set the advanced
gauge-info property to
basic/extended to include this information, or create a dedicated
Periodic Stats Logger for information about statistics of interest.
