LDAP User Experience Monitor

This SAM application monitor template tests the capabilities of a LightWeight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server, and measures the time it takes to perform LDAP search-and compare operations.


WMI access on target server.


Administrator on target server.

This template includes a single component monitor, the LDAP User Experience Monitor that tests the capabilities of a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server and measures the time it takes to perform an LDAP query. This monitor returns the number of entries returned by the LDAP query. By default, it queries the Administrator user.

Before using this monitor, provide the correct values in the following fields:

  • Realm (user domain): Specify the realm to use for LDAP authentication.
  • LDAP Search Root: Specify the LDAP root or suffix to use for the search.

By default, this monitor queries the Administrator in the somedomain.test domain.
