This document describes how an LDAP server (the supplier) may transmit, through an out-of-band email, index information or attributes of its naming context to another LDAP server (the consumer). The consumer server will make use of this information when determining whether the supplier server is likely to have entries in that naming context which match a particular search filter. This assists the consumer in processing subtree searches in distributed directories.
