Check LDAP response time


This Nagios plugin checks the response time of an LDAP directory.

To get a sharper time measure, the script use threads and returns a mean.


Required Perl modules:

  • Net::LDAP
  • Getopt::Std
  • Time::HiRes
  • threads

Edit the script to modify some default parameters:

  • version: LDAP version to use (default: 3)

Other parameters are set as script options (see below).


$ perl -H hostname [-p port] [-D binddn -P bindpw] [-n nb_threads] [-w warning_time] [-c critical_time]

Mandatory Options

  • -H: LDAP server hostname or IP, or LDAP URI

Other options

  • -p: LDAP server port (not working if LDAP URI is set in -H)
  • -D: Bind DN
  • -P: Bind password
  • -n: threads number (default: 0)
  • -w: warning time in seconds (default: 20)
  • -c: critical time in seconds (default: 60)
  • -f: display performance data
  • -F: LDAP filter
  • -b: LDAP base
  • -s: LDAP scope


This plugin, along with all other Nagios plugins from this site, can be downloaded in a single archive.
