I'm launching in.indentd from inet with 'wait' option
auth stream tcp wait root /usr/sbin/in.identd in.identd -e -o
with the following line in /etc/identd.conf
protocol:timeout = 120
I expected in.identd threads to exist after 120 sec after being launched,
(for example by /usr/sbin/ibench ) however they stay forever. I have also
auth stream tcp wait root /usr/sbin/in.identd in.identd -w -t120 -e -o
with same no effect on timeout.
identd now runs as its own process, which woiuld work around this problem.
