The query of an LDAP SLA object results in the aggregated LDAP SLA configuration, scalar data containing current values for the LDAP SLA, and time-series data. Current data comes from the Threshold object. Historical data comes from a metric query.

Historical data is more expensive to fetch and is only included if the client requests it. This allows an LDAP SLA query to efficiently get the configuration and current data for clients that only need the current data. A client that needs both current and historical data can include the appropriate query parameter and get all the data in a single call.
