I am using the following command to pull up changelog entries, however I am wondering how we can view "changes" attribute value, to me it appears to be encrypted/binary. I am able to view it via softerra browser, but I would like to do it via command line  Also, I would like to capture and process the change. Is there any tool to perform that?

# ldapsearch -T -h localhost -p 10636 -Z -P ../../alias/slapd-cert8.db -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j ~/dirt -b cn=changelog -s sub "(changenumber=1)"

version: 1
