dsrepl status: in a mixed topology, allow to display information from older DS versions


    • Type: New Feature
    • Status: Dev backlog
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 7.0.0
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: monitoring, replication, tools
    • Labels:


      dsrepl status allows to display the status and health of servers from 6.0 onward.
      It first discovers all the servers by reading the data from cn=topology,cn=monitor on the target server, and then reading cn=monitor for all the servers in the topology, expecting to find data a format compatible with 6.0+ servers.

      dsrepl status could be reworked to do a best effort of displaying information for older servers in a mixed topology.

      The things to take care of possibly include:

      • the attribute names have a different names, for a start they do not start with the ds-mon- prefix
      • some attributes are not present, some data not exposed in cn=monitor. It may be possible to also read cn=config to retrieve some of the missing data (ignoring expression values) ?
      • servers prior to 6.0 exposed discovery information in cn=admin data
      • TLS configuration have to be compatible for all the servers
      • a common monitoring user with compatible credentials has to exist for all the servers
      • etc. certainly more problems to overcome
