Description Brian DeFeyter 2005-04-01 16:02:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

Description of problem:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openldap-servers-2.2.13-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
As far as I can tell, the default install of openldap-servers and syslog within RHEL4 has the default logging settings enabled in slapd, but no logfile defined within syslog.

Most people probably don't need all of the verbose information that would be logged via syslog by default, so all this really does is result in is a higher cpu load generated by syslog than slapd itself.

I'd suggest either tuning the logging way down, or just adding "loglevel 0" to slapd.conf as I have done to completely disable logging.

Only a suggestion..
