Sadly Howard did not answer the above question you had, so I'll give you
the best solution I can think of based on what's currently available:
Have a secondary server (a replica) of the first. Using cn=config, delete
the syncrepl statement from the replica, run slapcat, then re‑add the
syncrepl statement when you're done. As long as the server is under heavy
write traffic and backups take signficant time, you will unfortunately
heavily fragment the DB.
I wonder: Is there a more elegant solution that lets one "pause" a
replication? Such a feature sounds useful for various reasons.
