Quite often a customer will want to monitor pwdLastAuthTime, that is the timestamp of the last successful authentication involving the entry.

pwdlastauthtime man page - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29127_01/doc.111170/e28967/pwdlastauthtime-5dsat.htm

Activate this attribute by setting pwdKeepLastAuthTime in the password policy entry to on.

pwdKeepLastAuthTime man page - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29127_01/doc.111170/e28967/pwdkeeplastauthtime-5dsat.htm

The problem is that there is a performance hit associated with these attributes.
