Forgive me if this isn't the correct place to post what may be an issue
with nscd, but I haven't been able to even find anyone who's reported this
We're running openldap 2.0.23 on a Solaris 8 box. Our mail server,
running Linux, uses nss_ldap to house accounts. With 2600+ users, use of
nscd is practically a necessity. (Nothing like 1k procmail processes
starting up during a mailing list delivery...)
It works fairly well, with one exception: every now and then (seems
random), nscd just stops responding. No procs can even be spawned on the
machine until it's threads are killed with a -9. There's no explanation
for why this happens, nothing in any logs, LDAP hasn't gone down, etc.
I'd appreciate any tips - I've now had to write a cronjob that dumps LDAP
into /etc/passwd every 30 mins to provide a "homegrown nscd replacement,"
and that's just plain ugly.
