I'm just writing up the small overlay section on slapo-syncprov (not much to it), but
the man page has confused me:
Specify a session log for recording information about write
operations made on the database. The<ops> specifies the number
of operations that are recorded in the log. All write operations
(except Adds) are recorded in the log. When using the session
log, it is helpful to set an eq index on the entryUUID attribute
in the underlying database.
"All write operations (except Adds) are recorded in the log."
What log are we talking about here?
Come on Gavin, read the docs you already wrote.
188.8.131.52 Syncrepl Details
The syncrepl engine utilizes both the present phase and the delete phase of
the refresh synchronization. It is possible to configure a per-scope session
log in the provider server which stores the entryUUIDs of a finite number of
entries deleted from a replication content. Multiple replicas of single
provider content share the same per-scope session log. The syncrepl engine
uses the delete phase if the session log is present and the state of the
consumer server is recent enough that no session log entries are truncated
after the last synchronization of the client. The syncrepl engine uses the
present phase if no session log is configured for the replication content or
if the consumer replica is too outdated to be covered by the session log. The
current design of the session log store is memory based, so the information
contained in the session log is not persistent over multiple provider invocations.
