Confused by phrasing "and are unrelated to messages exposed by the loglevel
configuration parameter". How are they unrelated to the loglevel setting?
It's talking about slapd debug messages, which are separate from loglevel
"Specify a file for recording slapd debug messages."
IOW - Doesn't loglevel always control the granularity of the
regardless of whether they are bound for stderr or the logfile?
No, only loglevel messages, not debug messages.
And yes, the 'logFileOnly' flag controls that behavior which
pointed out in the man page and despite what was said on earlier comment.
No, that's not clear at all. What it says is:
"logfile-only on | off
Specify that debug messages should only go to the configured
logfile, and not to stderr."
Which is talking only about debug messages and says nothing about loglevel
messages which by default get sent to syslog.
