These are likely trace messages from a LDAP client that uses the
OpenLDAP client library (-lldap). As OpenLDAP client library will
only produce trace messages when the LDAP client software has enabled
their production, there appearance implies that some LDAP client
software has enabled their production (likely due to how it was ran/
configured). They likely appear on your console due to the way
logging is configured on your system.
Could anybody tell me where these messages originate from, and how I
can disable them ?
They originate from some LDAP client running with "trace" debugging
enabled. You could check the configurations of each LDAP client you
are using to see what OpenLDAP error/debugging messaging they have
enabled, and then change their configure to suit you. It may also be
desirable to change your system logging configuration such that these
messages are not directed to the console.
