By default, the Directory Server ships with the built-in "Stats Logger' disabled. To enable it using the dsconfig tool or the Administrative Console, go to Plugins menu (available on the Advanced object menu), and then, select .
  1. Run dsconfig in interactive mode. Enter the LDAP or LDAPS connection parameters when prompted.
    $ bin/dsconfig
  2. Enter o to change to the Advanced Objects menu.
  3. On the main menu, enter the number for Plugins.
  4. On the Plugin menu, enter the number corresponding to view and edit an existing plugin.
  5. On the Plugin selection list, enter the number corresponding to the Stats Logger.
  6. On the Stats Logger Plugin menu, enter the number to set the enabled property to TRUE. When done, enter f to save and apply the configuration. The default logger will log information about the server every second to <server-root>/logs/dsstats.csv. If the server is idle, nothing will be logged, but this can be changed by setting the suppress-if-idle property to FALSE (suppress-if-idle=false).
