At a specified interval, the Stats Logger can write server statistics to a JSON file or to a log file in a .csv file, 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 value of less than 1 second. You can customize the statistics logged and their verbosity.

The Stats Logger can also be used to view historical information about server statistics, including:

  • Replication
  • LDAP operations
  • Host information
  • Gauges

To update the configuration of the existing Stats Logger Plugin, you can either:

  • Set the advanced gauge-info property to basic/extended to include this information.
  • Create a dedicated Periodic Stats Logger for information about statistics of interest.

For information about how to enable this logging and where to find the log file, see Enabling the Stats Logger.
