[389-users] Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: Replication delay, connection blocking ending in closed - B1

I tried it just now but it was way too verbose - we filled up 500mb of error logs in 15 minutes.

We have a lot more space, but it could take hours before we see another failure (these delays intermittently cause an application to fail). Unfortunately we can't re-produce on demand.

Can you turn on replication logging? I think it's level 8192 in the errorlog-level.
