The Last Access Time plugin is used to record the timestamp of the last activity targeting an entry. The plugin updates the ds-last-access-time attribute of the entry when it is accessed by an add, bind, compare, modify, modify DN, or search operation.
- The plugin should be enabled on all servers that have the same configuration.
- An updated ds-last-access-time attribute value is replicated like any other change to an entry.
- The ds-last-access-time attribute is not returned from a search, unless included in the attributes list explicitly, or given the "+" specification for operational attributes.
- The ds-last-access-time value format is yyyyMMddHHmmss.SSS'Z', which provides millisecond-level accuracy, such as 20131207144135.821Z.
- The ds-last-access-time attribute can be indexed with a local database index. The ordering index type is the most relevant, but may require a higher index entry limit (default is 4000) to accommodate searches for entries that have not been accessed in a long period of time. The ordering index type, with a short time range or high index entry limit, will result in indexed search results for requests such as (ds-last-access-time>=20131207144135.821Z).
last-access-timeupdates might occur with a higher frequency than intended.
