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

NAME
       slapd.replog - slapd replication log format

SYNOPSIS
       slapd.replog slapd.replog.lock

DESCRIPTION
       The  file slapd.replog is produced by the stand-alone LDAP daemon, slapd, 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,
       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 files.

	    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 deleted.

       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 record.

       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 con-
       vention.

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

	    replica: truelies.rs.itd.umich.edu
	    replica: judgmentday.rs.itd.umich.edu
	    time: 797612941
	    dn: cn=Babs Jensen, o=U of M, c=US
	    changetype: add
	    objectclass: person
	    cn: babs
	    cn: babs jensen
	    sn: jensen

	    replica: truelies.rs.itd.umich.edu
	    replica: judgmentday.rs.itd.umich.edu
	    time: 797612973
	    dn: cn=Babs Jensen, o=U of M, c=US
	    changetype: modify
	    add: description
	    description: the fabulous babs

	    replica: truelies.rs.itd.umich.edu
	    replica: judgmentday.rs.itd.umich.edu
	    time: 797613020
	    dn: cn=Babs Jensen, o=U of M, c=US
	    changetype: modrdn
	    newrdn: cn=Barbara J Jensen
	    deleteoldrdn: 0
