In Symantec Directory, there has been an enhancement to the DSA that allows you to determine the total number of entries the DSA has at any given time.
To check the total number of entries, you will need to telnet to the "console" port of the DSA, and enter the DXconsole command "get cache;".
telnet localhost <console_port>
dsa> get cache;
