The following ldapsearch example shows how to retrieve information about search operations (this example uses the legacy OpenLDAP ldapsearch syntax):

ldapsearch -h ldap.example.com -p 389 -D cn=RootDN -x \
        -b 'cn=processing time histogram,cn=monitor' -LLL \
        '(&)' searchOpsTotalCount searchOpsPercent \
        searchOpsAggregatePercent
dn: cn=processing time histogram,cn=monitor
searchOpsTotalCount: 490186258
