Was just thinking we could do a quite simple backend for use with the
overlay and delta-syncrepl. It would write into flat files and do typical
logfile rotation on its own. The backing store would have a minimum of two files
- one for the suffix entry, one for the current chunk of logs. There would be a
configurable number of logfiles, with the oldest simply being deleted when it's
time to purge.
Two things I'd consider helpful for long-time archiving/auditing:
1. filenames to allow of "merging" different log flat files into one big file
store on a different slapd instance.
2. instead of deleting moving files to an archive directory.
I know it's a different use-case but quite handy.
