Chapter 20. Monitoring Server and Database Activity

This chapter describes monitoring database and Red Hat Directory Server logs. For information on using SNMP to monitor the Directory Server, see Chapter 21, Monitoring Directory Server Using SNMP.

20.1. Types of Directory Server Log Files

Directory Server provides the following log types:
  • Access log: Contains information on client connections and connection attempts to the Directory Server instance. This log type is enabled by default.
  • Error log: Contains detailed messages of errors and events the directory experiences during normal operations. This log type is enabled by default.

    Warning

    If the Directory Server fails to write to the errors log, the server sends an error message to the Syslog service and exits. This log type is enabled by default.
  • Audit log: Records changes made to each database as well as to server configuration. This log is not enabled by default.
  • Audit fail log: Records failed audit events. This log is not enabled by default.
