Actually i want to know whether we can acquire any kind of lock in openLDAP for entries.

Suppose we read some entry and use this for doing some calculation and at the same time someone else modify this entry,
so i want to know that LDAP provides any kind of lock just like RDBMS.

In case of RDBMS we can acquire lock over any record so nobody can modify this until we release this lock.

Please tell me about the locking mechanism in OpenLDAP.
