The PingDirectory Server provides a watch-entry tool, which demonstrates replication or synchronization latency by watching an LDAP entry for changes. If the entry changes, the background of modified attributes will temporarily be red. Attributes can also be directly modified with this tool as well.

To run the watch-entry tool:

  • Perform the following to connect to as uid=admin,dc=example,dc=com and watch entry uid=kate,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com for changes:
    $ bin/watch-entry --hostname --port 389 \
      --bindDN uid=admin,dc=example,dc=com --bindPassword password \
      --entryDN uid=user,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
