Re: nscd throttling when high ldap use occurs

I've seen poor nscd performance on Solaris systems, it is the host caching part, you can turn that off on a Solaris box, don't know about Linux.

We don't know if it is an OpenLDAP problem or not.  I have seen it
happen several times over the last 12 months or more.  Stopping nscd
improves the stability of the system, but I am not sure it fixes it,
maybe only hides it.

I have not been able to gather enough information to diagnose the
problem: it only happens to me in production machines where I cannot
lose much time diagnosing it while the system is hosed and the load
through the roof.  That, if I even manage to login.

So I would be very much interested in any light shed on this.
