Replication in the PingDirectory Server can be monitored the following ways:
  • The dsreplication status subcommand displays basic information about the replicated base DNs, the number of entries replicated as well as the approximate size of replication backlogs at each Directory Server.
  • The more detailed information about the state of replication can be obtained via the information exposed in its monitoring framework under cn=monitor. Administrators can monitor their replication topologies using several tools and protocols: the PingDataMetrics Server, SNMP, LDAP, JMX, or through the Administrative Console. See Managing Logging and Monitoring.
  • The Periodic Stats Logger plugin allows collecting replication statistics for profiling server performance. For more information, see Profiling Server Performance Using the Periodic Stats Logger.
