Yes, I'm running back-monitor. Thanks for the tip. I didn't try it yet, but I
only run slapd in the foreground with -d 256 with runit and am not interested
in any syslog facilities - I only want all of my slapd logs to go to stderr
(with the exception of auditlog). So, the question is that do you know if
back-monitor managedInfo sends output to slapd's active logging mechanism or
will it go to syslog despite my wishes?
Did not try my self. I'd expect it to go to syslog.
slapd -d is most times used for debugging only.
