SLAPD.REPLOG(5)               File Formats Manual              SLAPD.REPLOG(5)

       slapd.replog - slapd replication log format

       slapd.replog slapd.replog.lock

       The  file  slapd.replog  is  produced  by  the stand-alone LDAP daemon,
       slapd(8), when changes are made to its local database that  are  to  be
       propagated to one or more replica slapds.  The file consists of zero or
       more records, each one corresponding to a change, addition, or deletion
       from the slapd database.  The file is meant to be read and processed by
       slurpd(8), the stand-alone LDAP update replication daemon.  The records
       are separated by a blank line.  Each record has the following format.

       The  record  begins  with  one or more lines indicating the replicas to
       which the change is to be propagated:

            replica: <hostname[:portnumber]>

       Next, the time the change took place given, as the  number  of  seconds
       since  00:00:00  GMT, Jan. 1, 1970, with an optional decimal extension,
       in order to make times unique.  Note that slapd  does  not  make  times
       unique,  but  slurpd makes all times unique in its copies of the replog

            time: <integer[.integer]>

       Next, the distinguished name of the entry being changed is given:

            dn: <distinguishedname>

       Next, the type of change being made is given:

            changetype: <[modify|add|delete|modrdn]>

       Finally, the change information itself is given, the  format  of  which
       depends  on  what kind of change was specified above.  For a changetype
       of modify, the format is one or more of the following:

            add: <attributetype>
            <attributetype>: <value1>
            <attributetype>: <value2>

       Or, for a replace modification:

            replace: <attributetype>
            <attributetype>: <value1>
            <attributetype>: <value2>

       Or, for a delete modification:

            delete: <attributetype>
            <attributetype>: <value1>
            <attributetype>: <value2>

       If no attributetype lines are given, the  entire  attribute  is  to  be

       For a changetype of add, the format is:

            <attributetype1>: <value1>
            <attributetype1>: <value2>
            <attributetypeN>: <value1>
            <attributetypeN>: <value2>

       For a changetype of modrdn, the format is:

            newrdn: <newrdn>
            deleteoldrdn: 0 | 1

       where  a value of 1 for deleteoldrdn means to delete the values forming
       the old rdn from the entry, and a value of 0 means to leave the  values
       as non-distinguished attributes in the entry.

       For  a changetype of delete, no additional information is needed in the

       The format of the values  is  the  LDAP  Directory  Interchange  Format
       described in ldif(5).

       Access  to  the  slapd.replog  file  is synchronized through the use of
       flock(3) on the file slapd.replog.lock.  Any process reading or writing
       this file should obey this locking convention.

       The  following  sample slapd.replog file contains information on one of
       each type of change.
