If the replication service goes down you can not do writes to the DS and I while I could potentially use that to make sure that everything works as it should I would like to avoid writing as that is expensive. Instead I have been looking into a read av “cn=Replication,cn=monitor”. Is there anything there that could tell me if the replication service is up or not?
Btw, to test the solution to my problem I would need to manually stop the replication service. How would I do that?
Can I check this entry?:
`dn:cn=Replication server RS(4149) <host>,cn=cn_admin data,cn=Replication,cn=monitor
cn: Replication server RS(4149) <host>
domain-name: cn=admin data
generation-id: cn=admin data 165740
But would this entry still exist if the replication service went down?

When you enable replication by default, the replication service is started in the same JVM, same process.
It is not expected that the replication service would go “down”.
With the recent versions of Directory Services, you can suspend/resume replication without un-configuring it, so that could give you an option to test.
But I don’t think there is a way to find its status from the Monitoring information.
I will look into this as it seems that it’s something that could be useful.
