dbmon.sh — Directory Server script for monitoring database and entry cache usage


[INCR=num] [HOST=hostname] [PORT=num] [BINDDN=binddn] [BINDPW=password] [DBLIST=databases] [INDEXLIST=indexes] [VERBOSE=num] dbmon.sh


dbmon.sh is a tool used to monitor database and entry cache usage. It is especially useful for database cache and entry/dn cache tuning - how much space is left, is the cache full, how much space on average do I need per entry/dn.


It doesn't take any command line arguments, so all options must be passed in as environment variables.

dbmon.sh will loop repeatedly showing the db information until it is killed or Ctrl-C

All arguments are optional, but you will most likely have to provide BINDPW

INCR - show results every INCR seconds - default is 1 second

HOST - name of host or IP address - default is localhost

PORT - port number (LDAP not LDAPS) - default is 389

BINDDN - DN to use to bind - must have permission to read everything under cn=config - default is cn=Directory Manager

BINDPW - password for BINDDN - default is secret

DBLIST - a list of databases you want to check - default is all ; for more than one, delimit with spaces e.g. DBLIST="one two three"

INDEXLIST - a list of indexes to show for each named database - default is none; specify all for all indexes, or named e.g. INDEXLIST="id2entry entryrdn"

VERBOSE - output level - 0 == suitable for parsing by a script - 1 == has column headings - 2 == provides detailed descriptions of the data - default is 0


INCR=1 HOST=ldap.example.com BINDDN="cn=directory manager" BINDPW="secret" VERBOSE=2 dbmon.sh


dbmon.sh was written by the 389 Project.
