Find out what's really happening in Active Directory with Quest's Change Auditor for LDAP. Diagnose directory performance problems, inventory application dependencies, and more. Dig deep into Active Directory's internals to see exactly what LDAP queries are hitting your directory infrastructure.
Change Auditor for LDAP captures every query that is submitted to your Active Directory infrastructure, revealing more detail than you ever thought possible. Find applications that are submitting repetitive, poorly constructed, or overly large queries to diagnose and solve directory performance issues. You'll have access to details such as the actual raw query, the result set size, and more. Change Auditor intelligently translates raw data into useful information, including resolving IP addresses to actual computer names. You'll know who submitted each query, where the query came from, where the query was executed, and more, all from a secure, tamper evident database that serves as an authoritative audit log.
Change Auditor helps make directory migrations less risky by enabling you to see exactly which applications depend upon Active Directory before you switch over to a migrated domain. You'll never miss a single application, including departmental or workgroup applications that you might not even have known about in advance.
One challenge with Active Directory can be the sheer number of LDAP queries it processes every minute. Simply capturing every query can result in a great deal of noise that you have to sift through, including queries related to ordinary directory activity, like Group Policy Objects. Change Auditor cuts through the clutter with intelligent filtering that helps you to eliminate the moment to moment noise and focus on just the LDAP queries you want to see. Whether you're trying to inventory application dependencies or solve a performance problem, you'll be able to quickly focus on the queries that actually matter.
You can customize Change Auditor's LDAP query filters at any time, enabling you to quickly dig down to the queries that interest you. Search, sort, and even generate real time alerts on selective traffic. It's all part of the powerful Change Auditor data management model.
