I was wondering if there are any concrete examples of using syncrepl to monitor a slapd for changes, and perform some scripted operation if the monitored data changes. I can think of several cases where this might be very handy, where you want to run a script or custom business logic, on receipt of some data being changed.
I have seen some examples in the 2.3.x days, where slurpd was used to push changes to a back-perl script, which then did some custom business logic and it did fill an very useful niche. I imagine these post-slurp syncrepl days you could use the syncrepl protocol in a push mode via a proxy to push changes at a back-perl instance to the same sort of thing.
But perhaps using syncrepl directly might seem like a better option, as this has been touted as a benefit of syncrepl, although i have not seen any specific examples.. To this end, i am wondering are the syncrepl client parts of slapd usable outside the context of the slapd binary? Has anyone tried this and has any examle code they are willing to share ?
