Overview #

The Skulker is the Edirectory Replica Synchronization EDirectory Background Processes

Skulker in EDirectory (40002.79) or later will immediately start synchronization without any delay soon after the data transaction completes successfully. This is done without affecting the performance of LDAP operations. Immediate skulking does not impact the schedule when synchronization is already in progress.

The Skulker is responsible for two primary tasks:

  • Distributing modifications to eDirectory objects contained within partition Edirectory Replicas maintained by the eDirectory server
  • Receiving and processing partition operations involving partition replicas hosted by the eDirectory server

DSRepair can report the status of the replica synchronization process from a number of different perspectives:

  • Synchronization status
  • Synchronization status of all servers
  • Synchronization status on the selected server

Ndstrace flag SKLK provides the ability to monitor the Replica Synchronization process directly. The Ndstrace flag SYNC provides information on inbound synchronization EDirectory Synchronization traffic
